AMTRAN Announces Local Bus Trip Planning through Google Maps



AMTRAN has announced a new application called transit trip planning through Google Maps™.
 
Starting from AMTRAN’s home page, customers just plug in their origin, destination, and time of day to have Google Maps™ plan their bus trip for them.  Their plan will include directions to the bus stop (and how long it will take to walk there), when the bus is scheduled to arrive (and how long the bus trip will take), and finally how to get from their ending bus stop to their final destination (again including how a walk).
                                                                            
According to AMTRAN General Manager Eric Wolf it works on a desktop computer, a tablet, or a smart phone. 
 
Other technological advances by AMTRAN include customers being able for the past four years to get real-time bus departure times from any AMTRAN bus stop through their computer or phone plus through scan-able QR codes at every stop.
