Googling around Vancouver

Google at Frankfurt Book Fair

If you're a transit hugger and a bus lover,
Translink of BC has teamed up with Google Transit to produce a cool tool for getting around in Vancouver.

Travelers can visit the
Google Transit site and type in a starting point and destination. You'll then receive detailed instructions and route plans using Google's e-z to use maps.

In many cases, an address is not even necessary. Just type in the name of a hotel, restaurant or the attraction where you're headed and you're good to go.
