Williamsburg Area Transit Authority Launches Google Transit for WAT buses

Date: March 5, 2009
Contact: Gary Cosman, Williamsburg Area Transit Authority

Phone: 757-220-5493




The Williamsburg Area Transit Authority (WATA) has joined  the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation and other public transit systems in the state, in initiating Google Transit, a new internet tool that makes it easier for bus riders to plan their trips.


Google Transit allows riders to navigate routes, check schedules, and map the distance and time it takes to reach your destination.  Google Transit will also provide gas savings to riders. The cost for the service is free. 


WATA hopes use of the system will increase confidence and ridership in the transit system.  To use the service, go to, click on the state of Virginia. Scroll down the list of locations and click on Williamsburg.  Put in your start point and destination.  WAT’s system map will appear and give your trip information.


Detail information on how to use Google Transit can be obtained by calling WATA Headquarters at 757-220-5493, or online at
