There’s something new for you bus riders. On January 1 Spokane Transit launched a new trip planner through Google maps. You can access it either through the main page of their website, here or directly from Google Maps by just typing in a start and end point for directions and checking “by public transportation”.

It’s pretty cool really. I typed in a couple different destinations, and for each it told me where I needed to walk to for a bus stop for the route I needed (plus how long it would take to get from my starting location to that bus stop), how soon until a bus on that route comes again, and exactly where to get off the bus to reach my destination. In one case, a walk was required to get where I was going once I got off the bus, and it even told me how long it would take to walk there.
