CyRide’s passengers can now Plan their Bus Trip via Google Transit! Get step-by-step transit directions in your web browser or on your mobile phone (download Google maps for your phone at m.google.com/maps) by entering in the specifics of your trip in Ames. Enter your origin and final destination addresses, the time you’re likely to leave/arrive and the day of your trip. Information will display which tells you how to get from point A to point B via CyRide including any walking and transferring between buses. We hope that our passengers enjoy this new feature from CyRide.
If you would like to speak to someone regarding bus route information, call (515)292-1100 during normal CyRide bus service hours.
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN USING GOOGLE TRANSIT - Please click the "Show options" link underneath the "B" Destination in Google Maps and choose PREFER "Less Walking" instead of "Best Route" within the drop down boxes. This will allow a more direct route via bus than the "Best Route" option. "Best Route" is not necessarily the "most direct route" for transit trips. In addition, walking directions/times on Iowa State University campus may reflect a less direct route as Google does not include sidewalk paths on campus and may direct passengers to walk to a campus building via existing streets. CyRide and ISU are working with Google to implement this data. We encourage users to report/e-mail any additional incorrect, misleading or confusing trip itinerary information to CyRide with the subject GOOGLE ISSUE in the subject header. We can only get better with your help!
