Anchorage bus routes arrive on Google Maps

Anchorage bus routes and schedules are now available to smartphone users through the Google Maps app.

Anchorage officials announced last Wednesday that the city’s People Mover bus system partnered with Google Inc. to incorporate public transit data into the technology company’s mapping system, the Anchorage Daily News reported.

Search results come with travel time, transfer opportunities, fare estimates and walking directions to bus stops.
