Trip planning and real-time information

To plan your trip, type in your destination to Transit app or Google Maps to see what stop and route you need for your trip. Both of these trip planning tools will give you options for determining when you want to travel. The default trip will show times for the next available bus, but you can select options to leave at a different time, or to arrive at your destination by a certain time. Learn more about trip planning using Google Maps. Download the Transit app in the Apple App Store or on Google Play.
