Key features of Map Your Public Transit Route are detailed below.  We appreciate your comments, suggestions, or hearing about any problems that you encounter using this new facility. Please - Contact Us - and tell us what you think.

About the New Map-based Interactive Bus Schedule

Our new application employs Google Mapping (which many internet users are already familiar with) to map all Bus routes and stops. The following are some key functions of the new map-based Map Your Public Transit Route facility:

  • Entering "Your Address" will show the address location on a map in relationship to a Route and its Stops.

  • Selecting any Bus Route will show the actual Route mapped along with all of its Stops.

  • Left-clicking on Stop will show the Stop’s location as well as all the times that a bus on that route will stop at that location.

  • The times on the schedules are time points and the bus will stop if hailed anywhere along the route that is safe to pull over. The buses do not stop at thoroughfares or intersections where cars are making right-hand turns.

  • Detailed views of the streets on a Route or a high-level view of a Route can be seen by zooming in and out.

  • "Street View" of any Stop (when available through Google) can be displayed. This shows a 360 degree, panoramic photo of the area around a Stop, making it easy for you to find or identify the Stop’s location.

  • A Print-Schedule button prints the Route including all of its stops and times on 8 ½” x 11” paper. This schedule is for one direction, if you need a return trip you will have to select the reverse route and print another schedule.
