Using Google Maps to Help Your Commute

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

The Portland Metro is now listed on Google Maps, complete with schedule, travel time, and price! This new feature allows you to figure out which bus line will get you where you want to go, and what time you need to be standing at that bus stop. PGS is interested to know how well the maps work, so if you use it, please let us know if the timing is accurate! 

For an example of the bus route from the Eastern Promenade to the University of Southern Maine click here.
