Finally! Google Maps Will Help You Take the DASH and Commuter Express Now

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

If you've ever wanted to use public transportation to go somewhere new (or just get home), you know what a gift from the gods it is to be able to use Google Maps to quickly figure out routes and schedules.

Now two key parts of Los Angeles-area public transportation systems have been added to Google Maps according to KCET: DASH and commuter express.

The short-range buses of DASH are sometimes the quickest and easiest way to get from point A to point B or to link you to your next public transportation connection. The DASH costs 50 cents and is air-conditioned on warm days. The Commuter Express helps you go long distances without a zillion stops. We appreciate both services from LADOT, which leaves us with only one question: what took so long?
