Transit information now available for Melbournians on Google Maps

Starting today, commuters in Melbourne can use Google Transit to make planning their journey around the city easier and faster. We’ve teamed up with PTV to add information about stops, routes and schedules for Melbourne buses, coaches, trams and trains on Google Maps. 

For example, the next time you’re planning a trip between the University of Melbourne and Southern Cross Station, you can simply type in the two locations to get information about which tram to catch. With the new version of Google Maps, you can also compare different public transport options to work out when you need to leave to arrive at your destination on time.

Google Transit is also available on Google Maps for Android and iPhone. Simply search for where you want go and Google Maps will show you how to get there using public transport from your current location.
We hope Google Transit in Melbourne will make it easier for you to plan your next journey and will help give you more time to explore what Melbourne has to offer.
