Google Your Ride

The Town launched the Village Shuttle on Google Maps earlier this week. All Village Shuttle routes, schedules, and stop locations can be found in Google Maps and on the mobile app.

This allows riders to find the best bus route to their destination on the app or at Riders can also browse other routes and schedule options, making it easy to find transit options with the technology already on your phone.

Rider Benefits:

  • Customize your route: Riders don’t have to sort through timetables — they can simply enter the date and time that they hope to arrive at their destination (or depart for the trip) and the trip planner will provide the most convenient trip.
  • Walking directions: Google Maps can provide walking directions, so you can find out exactly how to get to the nearest transit stop or station, and how to get to your destination once you leave the bus.
  • Information accessible by mobile: Transit trip planning is also available on mobile phones (such as iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, S60, and other Java enabled phones). Transit information is now available at people’s fingertips no matter where they are.
  • Using business names or place names instead of addresses: You don’t need to know which pizzeria you are going to or its address in order to get directions; with integrated local search results, this means that you don’t need to know exactly where you’re going — in the “to” and “from” fields, you can enter a business name (“Tasters Pizza”) or category (“pizza”) instead of a specific street address.
  • Support for over 40 languages: Google Maps is very convenient for foreign language riders, whether residents or international tourists, to find directions and information in their native language.
