New Jersey Transit offers Google trip planner

Posted on March 12, 2008

New Jersey Transit (NJ Transit) has partnered with Google to provide online trip planning via Google Transit. NJ Transit is the first major public transit agency in the Northeast to partner with Google as it joins more than 30 transportation agencies in the U.S. and abroad that currently offer trip planning through the system.


Google Transit uses the same scheduling data that drives NJ Transit’s online trip planner and provides specific trip times and transfers for travel between any of NJ Transit’s rail and light rail stations, integrating the data into the familiar Google Maps interface for convenient access to essential travel information.  


The NJ Transit Website will also integrate Google Maps with the information pages for each rail and light rail station, enabling customers to find local businesses without leaving the NJ Transit site. Bus schedule information is expected to be added to the system later this year.
