Alice Springs residents and tourists visiting the centre can now use Google Maps to plan public transport travel.

Chief Minister Adam Giles says the free tool is now available on Google Maps and can be accessed by smart phone and on the internet.

"Just like the Journey Planner for Darwin, locals and tourists alike can now get specific information about public transport options for Alice Springs, making travelling easier and more efficient for everyone," Giles says.

"The Northern Territory Government has again teamed up with Google to launch the Alice Springs planning tool which enables you to plan your journey from point A to point B, giving you the quickest route and the nearest bus stops for the day and time of your journey."

After putting in your journey details, Google Maps will then display available bus services, a bus route map and bus stop locations.

"Locals and visitors to Darwin and Palmerston have been using the Google Maps to plan their public transport journeys for a few years now so I’m delighted the people of Alice Springs now have access to the same time-saving public transport tool," says Giles.  

"We know Alice Springs residents make good use of public transport with about 110,000 bus journeys throughout 2013."

Public transport users can still access printed timetables, speak with customer service officers at interchanges or call 8924 7666 for timetable information.
