GO Transit and Google Team Up

GO Transit and Google are providing a new way for customers to plan their trip. Through the technology of Google Maps, the Google Transit trip planner stores the most recent GO Transit schedule information so that customers can quickly and easily get the information they need.

Customers can start planning their trip by visiting gotransit.com, and entering the “start” and “end” address information into the trip planner application on the GO homepage, or by visiting www.google.com/transit.

Once data is entered, Transit in Google Maps will generate a trip route complete with walking directions, transfers and a map. The trip plan will also offer GO customers multiple route options when applicable, identify the stops, stations and timing. GO on Google Maps can be accessed on mobile devices through the Google Maps for mobile application.

Google Street View launched in Kitchener and Waterloo on Wednesday.

And true to its word, Google has blurred faces (so your smile won’t be seen) and licence plates on the images of every house and condo and lamp post in greater Toronto, Hamilton and the Kitchener area in the “live” images.

Say “CHEESE!”

That’s right folks, if you’ve seen a funny car driving the streets of Waterloo Region, it’s apart of Google Maps Streets View project. The Streets View project will help to eliminate the need to describe what your house looks like to visiting friends and family, it will just be a simple click on a google map soon enough to view this new image.

Google's Camera Contraption

At present, a Google map search will bring up many properties, which may also be viewed as a satellite image. The street view program, however, is more sophisticated, instantly providing a full 360-degree view of a property and the neighbouring properties.
