Google Transit Now Includes NJ Transit Train Service

google transit njtransit service

NJ Transit train raiders now have one more tool to help plan their trips: Google Transit.

Starting today, commuters in New Jersey can use Google Transit to check train schedule and plan trips statewide. According to a BusinessWeek article, the service now covers 164 rail stations and 60 light rail stations in the state. Currently train information is available on Google Transit. Bus information will be added at the end of this year.

I don’t use a lot of public transportation, but do take NJ Transit train if I need to go to New York. With this service, getting information I want becomes easier. It also makes me wonder “Is Google taking control of our information?” I use Google search, Gmail, Google Reader, Google Desktop, and Google Map. Now Google Transit!

    I just used it and it told me to do build my own personal tunnel through the hudson. We New Yorkers use hopstop to get subway directions and and LOVE it. I am happy to see that google is moving in the right direction though.
