Toronto Transit added to Google trip planner

Posted on October 13, 2010

Google Transit trip planner (www.google.com/transit) now includes Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) schedules for all bus, streetcar and subway routes.

The TTC also announced that real-time data for next streetcar arrival information is available, free, to anyone wishing to make use of the data for custom applications. Real-time data for all bus routes will be available in 2011.

Earlier this year, the TTC launched its Internet Trip Planner. TTC customers can enter destination information in "from" and "to" fields from the TTC's home page. Using the TTC's schedules, the trip planner calculates the length of time the trip will take and suggests the quickest, most efficient route. Customers can select all modes of transit, or just a combination, such as subway, bus and/or streetcar, as well as routes that use accessible buses and subway stations with elevators.

With Google Transit, transit users can now plan their trips around the Greater Toronto Area by TTC, GO Transit and York Region Transit.
