Plannerstack and Google organise real time public transport information

June 10, 2015

This month Google Maps has provided public transit information by adding real-time public transit arrival times. 

The app will provide live arrivals for local buses, metro lines, and subway systems. It also provides alerts for canceled routes. It was co-created with the Dutch non-profit initiative Plannerstack, founded by Calendar42.

The feature is rolling out in three U.S. cities — Chicago, San Francisco, and Seattle — and in a couple of new countries — the U.K. and the Netherlands.

Plannerstack

Plannerstack is a community of individuals, organisations and companies who share a common goal: to provide the traveler with high quality and open services, ultimately decreasing the threshold and increasing the accessibility of public transport and mobility in the broadest sense.
