Just enter your origin and destination into Google Maps and choose the bus icon. Google will show the fastest bus routes and the time the next bus leaves.
“By accessing data provided by the NCTD, Google Maps now shares up-to-the-minute data with citizens faster than ever before,” said Matthew Tucker, NCTD’s executive director, said Monday in announcing the new service. “This type of collaboration is part of the NCTD’s commitment to use technology to improve service to our transit customers.”
Google Maps uses a technology called general transit feed specification that was first established by Google in 2005 in conjunction with the Portland, OR, transit agency. NCTD has been providing route data since 2011, and adding real-time bus information is the latest improvement.
The transportation district’s 33 BREEZE bus routes serve nearly 30,000 riders a week.
