ACTION on Transit for Google Maps

Transit for Google Maps is a free service that provides a journey planning tool for desktop computers and mobile devices. ACTION users can access this service from the Google Transit page. For those with a mobile device use the Google Maps application, available on Android, Blackberry and Windows devices. Apple iPhone and iPad users upgrading to iOS 6 will now need to access Google Transit for ACTION services via Safari or other mobile browser. Once the page has been loaded, we recommend adding as an icon to your home screen for easy access.

Tips for using Transit for Google Maps:

  • use street numbers and names for more accurate results
  • specify your preferred arrival or departure time using the "Show Options" button
  • times listed on Transit for Google Maps include walking and transfers. Quicker travel times may be achieved by starting or ending from different locations. This should be considered when planning your journey.
