PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – PATCO has become the latest mass transit agency to hook up with an Internet-based service that helps riders plan their trip.

Drivers have taken Google maps for granted. But there’s a transit side to that service that agencies have to sign up with, if they want potential riders to have access.

The PATCO high speed line has now joined in, according to General Manager Bob Box.

“Now anybody around the world that’s going to come to this area can just type in their origin and destination. It’ll tell them how to get from PATCO to New Jersey Transit to SEPTA, whatever, to give you walking directions then from your station to your destination.”

There’s no fee to use the service either for you or PATCO, as it turns out although the agency had to submit information to Google to make the search engine work.
