Planning a route on Jefferson Parish’s bus system got a little easier Monday, as the transit system announced that riders can now find route information through Google.
Jefferson Transit, or JeT, joins dozens of other transit systems that have teamed up with Google to show route information and schedules on the search engine’s maps.
The information, which is available on Jefferson Transit’s website or through Google maps, gives users the option of selecting buses when plotting directions between two addresses and provides information on the lines serving those routes and their schedules.
“This partnership shows JeT’s commitment to innovating, as well as serving and attracting new riders,” Google Strategic Partner Manager Ryan Poscharsky said in a news release announcing the partnership. “Together we can provide useful and accurate information to help people quickly get to where they want to go.”
