BUS, BIKE, WALK or DRIVE -Where do you want to go?
The Huntsville Transportation Department has formed a partnership with Google Transit, a public transit trip planning feature of Google Maps. This feature allows you to plan your bus, bike, walking or driving route by entering the date and time that you would like to arrive at your destination or begin your trip. The trip planner will provide options with the travel time, number of transfers and the cost of the bus fare.
Simply put your starting location in the start field and your arrival destination in the end field. Google Transit accepts the names of locations (such as Parkway Place Mall) or the address. Add your destination or arrival time and click Get Directions.
Google Maps also provides walking directions to assist you in reaching your destination once you get off a bus and has street views to help you find the closest transit stop and become familiar with your destination before you get there. Google Transit is also available on your mobile device.
