ORC’s new journey planner integrates Google Transit

ORC’s new journey planner integrates Google Transit

Users of the Dunedin bus network now have access to enhanced timetable and route information.

ORC has introduced a new journey planner for the network that integrates Google Transit information, which can be accessed through the Bus area of the council’s website (www.orc.govt.nz).

ORC director corporate services Wayne Scott said the planner prompts the user to enter a bus journey origin and destination. The journey planner uses Google Transit and Google Maps, which now includes Dunedin bus timetable data, to generate the next available routes.

“The journey planner allows you to enter where you are and where you want to go. It then works out your ideal journey, with the number of stops and estimated travel time,” Mr Scott said.

Many phones have Google Maps installed as the default mapping tool; alternatively, the Google Maps app can be downloaded from Apple or Android stores, the tool can also be directly accessed by any smartphone’s web browser.

Mr Scott said the introduction of the planner aimed to make ORC’s timetable more accessible and from anywhere at any time.

Professor Ian Shirley: The Budget That Failed Auckland

The 2016 budget offered Auckland nothing in the way of vision or hope and it continued the National Government’s threats against the Auckland Council. Threatening the Council with over-riding its democratic processes if it fails to release land for housing is a bullying tactic aimed at diverting attention away from the fundamental problems with housing in the region.
