Google Transit feature watch: “Fare Info” link

As with many Google products, Google Transit evolves subtly and incrementally, often in ways that are easy to miss if you don’t look closely.

I am going to start noticing some of the changes on this blog so that users and agencies alike can take advantage of them (or discuss in the comments section).

Here is something new that I noticed recently. Next to the link to each agency, now there is also a “Fare Info” link for many agencies.

fare-info

Trillium does not include the agency_fare_url field in any agencies’ feeds yet, but I assume that if we do, the “Fare Info” link will go there?
