County Bus Routes Now on Google Maps

Posted on September 8, 2017

Somerset County Freeholder Brian D. Levine has announced that the county’s public bus routes are now just a click away on Google Maps.

“The addition of our county bus routes to Google Transit will be a great convenience for students heading back to Raritan Valley Community College this fall, as well as for others who rely on our SCOOT, DASH and CAT buses for work or other transportation,” Freeholder Levine said.

Go to Google Maps on desktop or mobile (https://maps.google.com) and select the transit icon, enter your start point and destination within Somerset County, and get county bus route information to guide you to your destination.

Google relies on agencies such as the Somerset County Transportation Division to provide routes and stop schedules to feed into Google Maps.  So for instance if you’re in Hillsborough and want to go to Somerville, you can get directions from Google Maps and it will tell you where the nearest SCOOT bus stop is and what time the next bus will arrive, then tell you what stop to get off at and what time you will arrive.

To report technical issues with the Google Transit function, email GIS@co.somerset.nj.us. For information about the county’s transportation services, contact the Transportation Division at 908-231-7116 or toll-free at 1-800-246-0527.

NOTE: There is also a daily NJTransit bus which runs south into Mercer County from Orchard Rd./Bridgepoint Rd. to the Quakerbridge Mall, with many stops in between.  The 605 bus route is also found on Google maps. Here is the 2017 time schedule : https://www.njtransit.com/pdf/bus/T0605.pdf
