A comprehensive information about D.C.’s public transportation is now available on Google Transit, Google announced today.
“In partnership with Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), we’re adding all of D.C.’s Metro and bus stations, stops and routes, as well as connections to other transit systems in nearby cities. You can find this information on Google Maps as well as Google Maps for mobile–no matter where you are, you can get to where you’re going. With Google Transit, D.C. metro-area commuters–including those in Baltimore, Montgomery and Jefferson counties–may discover a quicker route to work, while visitors can easily make their way from Reagan National Airport straight to the Smithsonian,” Google informed.
“Directions are also available on Google Maps for mobile–so if you’re graduating from GWU and want to meet some friends in Adams Morgan to celebrate, it’s as easy as pulling out your phone. If you’re using an Android device, for example, search for [Adams Morgan] in Google Maps, click on the Places result and select “Directions.” Switch to Transit in the upper-left corner and find out which bus gets you there fastest.”
