Terms and conditions

We strive to provide quality information through Google Maps, but we can’t guarantee 100% accuracy. Use the trip planner as a first step for planning purposes only. We recommend riders double-check trip itineraries with the printed bus schedules and other sources. Neither this transit agency, nor any other, nor the designer of this site, will be held responsible for any mishap which may result from using Google Maps transit itineraries. Also see the Google Maps Terms and Conditions.

What should I do if I receive incorrect, misleading, or confusing trip itinerary information?

If your trip itinerary has inaccurate stop location, time, fare, or service schedule information, this is likely because of an error in the information this or another transit agency has provided to Google Transit. Record the start address, end address, and arrival/departure date & time for your itinerary and contact the appropriate transit agency to tell them about the problem so it can be fixed.
