Taking a ride on Red Deer Transit just got easier with Google Maps.
The City of Red Deer has hopped on board offering riders the opportunity to plan their local bus trips using the website or a mobile device.
While Google Maps is a free program, the city uses staff to verify and upload the information to the website. The website — www.google.ca/maps — now displays transit information including Red Deer bus stops, routed, schedules and fares in one user-friendly place.
To find a bus route click “Get Directions” and enter your starting location and destination.
Be sure to choose the transit icon.
You can enter a time if you want to “Leave Now,” “Depart at,” or “Arrive by a “time and date,” and click the “Get Directions” button.
Google Maps will list at least three different options to travel in order of relevance and convenience.
