Google Maps and Public Transport
In this article I want to focus on Google Maps, specifically using Google Maps to make using public transport easier.
Most people know what Google Maps are – but just in case a quick overview might help. Google Maps is a huge interactive map on your browser that gives you the amazing opportunity to zoom in to pretty much any place in the UK and see very specific details like street names etc. just as you would on a road map. You can do this for almost anywhere in the UK, at any time, with no need to turn pages or own multiple road maps and so on. This alone would be a great tool, but on top of that you can search for local businesses, train stations and even people’s addresses etc. Furthermore, one great feature, amongst many, is the ability to plan out a route, say from your home in Manchester to your friend’s in London, as well as something closer to home, like Rusholme to Cheetham Hill, Fallowfield to Manchester City Centre, and so on.
