What’s New

Concord Area Google Transit

Concord Area Transit fixed route bus service is now on Google Maps! After an extensive amount of work at CNHRPC and Concord Area Transit, CAT fixed route bus service is now on Google Maps! When using Google Maps for directions in the Concord area, there is now the option to get directions via transit. Google will provide up to 3 route options, telling you how to walk to the bus stop, which bus to get on and at what time, how to make any transfers if needed, what stop to get off and how to walk from there to your destination. Google Maps had already offered directions by car, by walking, and by bicycling, and now with transit directions available, all modes of travel are covered. The process involved developing a “general transit feed specification” or GTFS file, which is an assortment of complicated, interlinking spreadsheets that describe the routes, schedules, and all other characteristics of the bus service. After coordinating with Google and going through a long period of testing by CNHRPC and CAT, the service is now up and running.
