There is a certain happiness sighted when your bus comes along. It is of course a small specialized form of happiness and will never be a great thing.

Google's Transit Map Overlay

For some time now, Google Maps has offered transit riders in Sacramento the opportunity to plan point-to-point trips using Sacramento Regional Transit. Now Google has added a new feature: Transit system overlays.



UPDATE: Google announced today (Feb. 19) that the Transit Map Overlay is now available in Davis, too.

UPDATE March 12: New video blog post here.



Warning: Shameless self-promotion

Since my full-time gig in Oakland devolved into a part-time job that I do from my home in Sacramento, I've been working on marketing my talents. I've started with a simple Flash-based introductory site. I'll be adding a demonstration Drupal site and another example using CMSimple.

they should offer to only include rail as an overlay. I used one of these maps in one of my land use classes, but it was cluttered and distracting with all the bus routes, especially if printed in black and white, not to mention the LRT and bus stop symbols are wayyyy to small :/
