March 7, 2022 – BSOOB Transit is proud to announce the launch of our public transit information on Google Maps. This BSOOB Transit partnership with Google will allow people to better understand the transit network, bus schedules, and create individualized trip plans. The system details are now available on any device that can access Google Maps (browser or app).
“We hope our services being available on this platform will improve understanding for our system and connect new riders to BSOOB Transit,” said Chad Heid, Executive Director. To access this information, users just need to click the “Transit” button when searching for directions on the map. As an additional benefit, the Google Transit app integrates all regional transit providers to create multi-agency trip plans when appropriate.
BSOOB Transit providing this detailed information on the Google app can improve the overall quality of service and encourage non-locals and social service agencies to make greater use of public transit services.
“Joining Google Transit gives our region the ability to compare personal auto and transit travel times. Ideally this tool will allow some folks to find alternative trip options that can minimize personal fuel expenses,” Chad Heid continued.
