Filling the gaps over the mountains and through the woods

I haven’t posted to the blog much recently because Trillium has been so busy preparing GTFS and adding agencies to Google Transit.  Recently, we’ve been part of filling many more of the gaps in Google Transit transit trip planner for the Pacific northwest.

Here are some examples of the longer intercity itineraries that can now be planned on Google Transit:

LAX-to-Big-Bear
LAX to Big Bear, California, across L.A. Metro, Metrolink, and Mountain Area Regional Transit Authority (MARTA). MARTA is a Trillium client.
corning-to-susanville
Corning, CA to Sunsanville, CA via Tehama Rural Area Express (TRAX) and Susanville Indian Rancheria Public Transportation Program. Both are Trillium clients.
clatsop-to-salem
Clatsop County, OR to Salem, OR via Sunset Empire Transportation District, Tillamook County Transportation District (TCTD), TriMet, and South Metro Area Regional Transit (SMART). TCTD and SMART are Trillium clients.
crescent-city-to-cottonwood
Crescent City, CA to Cottonwood CA via Redwood Coast Transit (RCT), Redwood Transit System (RTS), Trinity Transit, and Redding Area Bus Authority (RABA). All agencies are Trillium clients.
