Portland and South Portland bus schedules & routes now on Google Maps

View Larger Map

The schedule and route information for METRO and South Portland Bus Service buses have been added to Google Maps. Ask for directions in the Greater Portland area, and you'll now be able to get directions by public transit (in addition to walking, cycling, and driving directions).

This is a handy way to use the buses without a printed schedule. Now, instead of consulting a timetable, you can just get on a computer or your phone to see when the next bus is coming, and find different routes to get where you need to go on time.

Maybe you've arrived on a flight from the Jetport, and are interested in saving a cab fare downtown - follow this link to see when the next 3 buses depart.

Or maybe you got carjacked in Falmouth Foreside. No problem! Here's the schedule for the Falmouth Flyer.

Happy riding.
