Santa Monica Wants Google Transit! sign now

Whereas, we ride transit regularly and would benefit from better schedule information or would ride transit more often if schedule information were easier to access.

Whereas, many of us use Google Maps to locate businesses, and find driving, biking, walking, or transit directions, and we find this interface familiar and easy to use.

Whereas, Google Maps for Mobile is available for or included with the four leading smart phone operating systems: Android, Blackberry OS, iOS, and WebOS.

Whereas, the unavailability of Big Blue Bus directions on Google Transit creates unnecessary confusion for transit riders who use Big Blue Bus.

We hereby request the following:

1) That by 10/30/10, Santa Monica Big Blue Bus commit to and publicize a date by which its scheduling data will be available on Google Maps (Google Transit); and,
2) The Santa Monica Big Blue Bus publicize its progression through the steps needed to migrate its data to the GTFS format, reach a licensing agreement with Google, upload the data to Google, test the data, and make the data available to users of Google Maps for Mobile or the Google Maps Web Site.

    I ride the Big Blue Bus every day, to and from work, and also use it, when possible, to go out to bars and clubs at night. This information would not only make it easier for me to do that, it would make it easier for my friends and other potential riders.

    Many students at UCLA have never even taken a bus within the city, although public transit is readily accessible from the university. This needs to change, and having the transit function available on Google maps would make trip planning infinitely more a

    I've been on them a lot about this. Was told 2 months ago it would be weeks. I asked again and said "early semptember", it was supposed to happen a year ago. What the hell?

    It's time to join the present, Big Blue. This is how we get our directions in 2010 and the longer you wait to get on-board, the less people are going to use your service.

    I would be much more likely to take the BBB if it was on Google transit.
