Taking the bus in the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) just got easier for anyone with access to a computer, tablet or smart phone thanks to the expansion of an online transit trip-planning tool.
According to a news release issued by the RDN, transit users now have access to the Transit Trip Planner, on either Google or Bing maps, which is “a public transportation planning tool that combines the latest B.C. Transit schedule and route information with the power of existing, popular search engines.”
The online planner is free of charge.
“Transit customers are demanding user-friendly route information,” said B.C. Transit president and CEO Manuel Achadinha. “This technology gives existing and new customers a convenient and simple to use tool to plan their transit trips.”
The release states there were more than 2.6 million passenger trips on B.C. Transit in the RDN in 2013-14.
