Airdrie Transit now available on Google Maps

September 27, 2016

AIRDRIE, ALBERTA - Airdrie Transit’s public transit data has now been integrated into Google Maps, giving residents and visitors the ability to plan their travel using the Google Maps website or Google Maps app.

Users can now use Google Maps to access Airdrie Transit bus routes and schedules by typing in a destination and clicking on the bus icon. A list of available bus routes will pop up for the user to choose from accompanied by stop and travel times specific to the user’s chosen route for increased efficiency. Once the user clicks on their ideal route, a map of the route appears along with walking directions to the nearest bus stop for that given route.

“Using and understanding the existing transit routes and schedules was identified as a barrier by non-transit users,” says Chris MacIsaac, Transit Coordinator, City of Airdrie. “We considered our options to remove this barrier and determined that using a platform such as Google Maps was the most logical approach. Google Maps makes it easy for driving directions and now that extends to using public transit in and around Airdrie.”
