Google Transit coming to KC

Google Transit Event

We’re not claiming any responsibility for this, but we did post in October asking KCATA and The JO to jump on board Google Transit, since it’s free, requires very little technical work to join, and far exceeds the usability of most online trip planners (besides, who doesn’t use Google Maps these days?). Kudos! Now where is The JO?

UPDATE: The Google Transit trip planner is Mac friendly, unlike the ATA’s existing planner. However, not all mobile devices handle the pages well. We tested on a BlackBerry and didn’t get very far, but Windows Mobile and PalmOS worked okay (it’s useable).

UPDATE 2: According to this article, The JO is “still working on it.” We’ve also confirmed that Google Transit works on iPhones, but only displays text instructions.

    I’ve been emailing, asking about this monthly for since before last October, so I’ll take all the credit for this. Just kidding, thanks KCATA.
