Posted in:

CaptureThose Google people have now added public transport to their Google maps site and now you can plan a journey using trains, buses ferries.

“You can now check the best time and route for millions of departures for trains, tubes, trams, buses and ferries every day, says David Tattersall, Product Manager for Public Transport in Google Maps. “In total, 17,000 different routes across the UK are featured, from Land’s End to John O’Groats (a journey that will take you about 27 hours by foot, train and bus).

“You can now get public transport directions for everything from cross-country trips, to timings for the local village bus, to the St Mawes ferry in Cornwall which will save you a 55 minute journey over land to Falmouth.”
