TAMPA — Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority bus route maps and connections available on Google Maps now provide real-time updates of bus operations.

The information is available in 40 languages by clicking the bus image on Google Maps and typing in the rider’s origin and destination along with the date and desired time of arrival or departure.

Trip updates represent any changes in the timetables for predicted arrivals for stops along the route. Trip updates can provide for more complex scenarios where trips are canceled, added to the schedule, or re-routed.

Google Maps also includes transfers between different transit agencies in overlapping service areas for those who have made their schedule information available to Google. Detailed information on how to get to or from a transit station on foot is shown for transit results along with affording users the option to view aerial imagery, street level images via Street View, and additional local information such as business reviews.
