I follow a lot of blogs related to transportation and technology and sometimes I come across some powerful testimonials for Google Transit.
Here is one from the comments section of a blog post on the Greater Greater Washington blog some time ago:
It is amazing how much easier it is to plan out a transit route with google maps than with other tools. A lot more people might ride buses if they could find the best route easily. I recently just started commuting via bus from Arlington into Tysons and have found that, unbelievably, it is faster than driving. I’d probably have started riding the bus years ago if there had been an easy way to find that out. (db on Mar 11, 2009 11:49 pm)
