sbc just left a comment with good news that TARC is moving forward with getting their data to Google for the Google Transit program.
I emailed the Metro Council about this and it was fowarded on to TARC. Here’s their response – just the one we were hoping for:
Dear Mr. Coan – Thank you for your suggestion regarding Google
Transit. We have been in touch with Google and intend to get our data
included in their system as soon as possible. We are currently engaged
with finalizing our own trip planner, working out some inevitable bugs,
but we will be proceeding with Google in the coming months. Thank you
for your interest.

Unfortunately it sounds like they’re so tangled with their own (perhaps
overly flawed?) trip planner that it may take a while but at least we know
they’re aware of it and are actively working on it.
Allow me to take this opportunity to say to Ms. Walfoort that we have many talented people (specialists in mapping, web applications, social media, communications and other areas) in Louisville who would love to work with TARC both in paid consultant roles and as volunteers to help TARC move forward with these kind of initiatives. Please let us help.
