Ride on Delhi and Ahmedabad buses with Google Maps

Ride on Delhi and Ahmedabad buses with Google Maps: "More people, in our metro cities, use local bus services to commute than any other transport network/medium. Inspite of this, the availability and dissemination of route and schedule information of these service have tremendous scope for improvement. Furthering our goal of expanding transit coverage of Indian cities, we are glad to announce the addition of DTC (Delhi Transport Corporation) and AMTS (Ahmedabad Municipal Transport Services) bus services to Google Transit. These cities join Mumbai, Bangalore and Pune bus services that are already available apart from 450 cities globally.

How to make the best use of Google Transit

Not only is it very easy to plan your trip, but you can also find a trip that involves a) fewer transfers b) less walking or c) uses a particular type of transit service (trains or buses), using Google Transit
  • Search for information to reach from Place A to B on Google Maps, the results will show a map with the possible route and driving directions for the commuter
  • Choose the transit option by clicking the train icon (next to the car icon)
  • Commuters would get first hand information on best available multi-modal routes and step by step directions including frequency, and travel duration for each leg of the trip in text and on the map.
  • You can also refine the trip options by clicking on the “Show Options” link that appear below destination point B field
Below is one example. You are visiting a friend who stays in Mayur Vihar phase I in Delhi and you would like to visit Red Fort using the bus.



Your friend instead suggests taking Delhi Metro to go to Red Fort and bus for the return journey. Its very easy to plan this using Google Transit, simply choose the preferred transit service to “Subway” and hit “ Get Directions” !



So next time when you want to plan your trip whether from New Delhi Railway Station to Vasant Kunj or from Ahmedabad railway station to IIM, explore all the public transport options using Google Transit and adopt an environment friendly way to commute.
