Portland finally gets on the map!

Thursday, December 08, 2005
Ladies and Gentleman, allow me to introduce Google Transit! This is Google's latest beta tool and it basically combines Google Maps and the local transit info. The neat part, at least for me, is that the city they're testing on is Portland, Oregon.

The bad news is that I looked up my morning commute on there. Yes, I travel the length of Highway 217 twice a day. ("The Trudge.") It would take me almost an hour and a half to get to work via bus in the morning! Driving that takes me about half an hour. Cost-wise it's a wash because I burn about $3 of gas a day, which is roughly the price of two bus tickets. How much is that extra hour of my life (each way, remember) worth?

Anyway, check it out and have fun!
