Google Transit: Best travel tool since the wheel

July 30th, 2008

Love to reduce ozone, carbon, and pollution by riding public transit? But hate the ineffective trip planners on transportation authority web sites? (Honestly, try to get to Broomfield from Boulder using the RTD trip planner.) Google saves the day with their new tool, Google Transit. It's a pleasure to use, with a genius back end; a dead-simple interface; and excellent maps, icons, and instructions.
