Google Transit Expands With New Cities PLUS a Selection of Other Real Time and Trip Routing Tools
Google Expands Google Transit With New Cities
It appears that the team in Mountain View has expanded their transit service (find times, plan routes, etc.) for a few more cities. The service first launched was only available for Portland, OR. Now, some 18 months later the service is now available for:
+ Tampa (HRTA)
+ Honolulu (HRT)
+ Eugene, OR (Lane Transit District)
+ Pittsburgh (Port Authority)
+ Seattle (King County Metro)
Now, what if you don't live in one of those cities and even if you do? Over the past few months we've been featuring numerous real-time databases on ResourceShelf. Here's a quick peek at a few transportation-related ones. Much more to come. This is just a small sample.
