B.C.'s Kelowna Regional Transit now on Google Transit

Posted on September 7, 2011

British Columbia-based Kelowna Regional Transit System announced its customers can now use Google Transit to plan their trips on the system.

During this initial phase, customers are encouraged to test the new online trip planner and provide feedback to BC Transit so this service can continually be improved and enhanced.

Google Transit on Google Maps is a public transportation planning tool that combines the latest BC Transit schedule and route information with the power of Google Maps. It is a free service that makes trip planning quick and easy for everyone.

Setting up this online tool involved gathering detailed information on the Kelowna Regional Transit System — ensuring accuracy of data, identifying the geographical coordinates of more than 850 bus stops in the region and synchronizing them with more than 6,100 trips BC Transit currently provides in Kelowna, weekly.

BC Transit staff will continually oversee quality assurance and data validation as new routes are added or schedules are changed.
