Google Transit's early bird Earth Day launch

Wednesday, April 16, 2008 at 10:45 AM



Last month, we told you about the Earth Day Challenge we issued to transit agencies. Today, with Earth Day one week away, I'm very happy to announce that six new agencies have been added to Google Transit. This means we now support over 40 agencies internationally, plus the entire country of Japan.

New agencies in the United States include:
  • Valley Transit: provides services within the city of Walla Walla, Washington.
  • Grape Line Transit: offers services between Walla Walla and Pasco, Washington.
  • CitiBus: has offered services for the city of Lubbock, TX since 1932.
  • Unitrans: offers bus service for City of Davis, California. Interested in going to the Davis Picnic Day on April 19? Make sure you catch the morning bus!
  • Rio Vista Delta Breeze: provides services within the city of Rio Vista and connects to 6 surrounding cities in California.
We're also pleased to welcome Tram et Bus de la CUB, which services the famous wine region of Bordeaux, France.

These agencies are leading the way in getting the Earth Day word out and helping to make our planet greener. They are fine examples of environmental responsibility!

As Earth Day (April 22) approaches, I encourage everyone to use public transportation during the next week contribute to this global effort. Even better, try to use public transportation every day and make your city and our planet a better place. Find out more about what Google is doing for Earth Day at www.google.com/earthday08.
