Transit

Displaying Transit Data to Users

Transit data can be displayed to users in a variety of different ways and we encourage you to check out one of the many transit applications already available that are using transit data.

As a specific example, the following screenshots show sample user interfaces displaying transit data in Google Maps. Each screenshot highlights a different field from a transit feed.

Note: The Google Maps user interface for transit is subject to change at Google's discretion. As such, there is no guarantee that the data that you provide will be displayed exactly as shown in the screenshots below.
