The Ontario, Canada-based Regional Municipality of York (YRT) partnered with Google
to offer riders new real-time trip plans through Google Maps.
The innovative service, Google Live Transit Updates, tracks YRT buses using INIT’s GPS-based navigation system and gives riders the exact time a bus will depart from their stop. Since regular schedules can vary due to changing traffic and weather conditions, real-time schedules take the guesswork out of trip planning.
YRT/Viva is the first transit agency in Canada to offer real-time trip planning on Google with up-to-the-minute next bus departure information.
