You can now use Google Maps to figure out what bus to take in Athens thanks to Ms. Stephanie Sharp and her team! Just click on the Public Transit option to see time, routes, and details for all Athens Transit routes. Google Maps will actually figure out your route for you and list any transfers needed. This has been a pivotal component of successful public transit systems in other communities for years.
“This is one of the game-changers that we have needed for our transit system”, said Tim Denson of Athens for Everyone’s Transit Campaign. “Having Athens Transit on Google Maps makes it so much easier for a personal unfamiliar with our public transit options to be able to use the bus. We at A4E are very appreciative of Stephanie Sharp and her LeadAthens team for getting this done.”
