The impressively named ConstantineXVI’s Tumblr points out that Google’s new Google Transit service does not have TARC’s data in the system. So the exquisitely named one encourages us all to write to TARC asking them to send their data to Google.
Yesterday (June 5), Google updated their Google Maps for Mobile application to include routes for public transportation
in various cities. Unfortunately, Google does not have data for TARC’s
service in Louisville. Google’s help page for the service includes an
address for transit companies to send them their data. I ask you to help me convince TARC to work with Google to make it easier for us to get around Louisville via bus. Please contact TARC
and pass this message along to them, especially the above links. If
you happen to have direct contact with TARC officals or Metro Goverment
officials, I encourage you to exploit those connections.
Update: Michael from Metro Mapper has been keyed into these kind of issues for a while and TARC has responded with a deaf ear. He’s even offered his expertise for free and got no response. Come on TARC, step it up. If there is anyone who knows who we can contact at TARC, to have an actual conversation instead of just sending emails that never get responded to, about this kind of stuff please drop a comment or email.
