Planning a quick trip across town using public transit could one day be a matter of simply Googling the route.

Tomorrow, the TTC will consider an offer by the Internet search engine Google, which wants to give commuters free online trip information.

Google has asked the TTC for station, stop, schedule and route data to create a trip planner so commuters could input origin and destination points to get the shortest or fastest routes.

Implications - Traveling, commuting or vacationing can often end up creating stressful and overwhelming situations for certain individuals. Businesses that devote their efforts to make such trips or journeys more organized, convenient and efficient will appeal to the large numbers of individuals within society who find themselves traveling frequently.
