Find Your SRTA Bus Route on Google Earth!
Have you ever wanted to see SRTA bus routes on Google Earth? Now you can do just that with a new interactive system map that was created for SRTA by Jennifer Chaves, a Transportation Planner at the Southeastern Planning & Economic Development District (SRPEDD).
SRTA’s fixed route bus system and bus stops are available for download. To access the file, follow these easy directions:
1. Click here to install Google Earth on your computer. You will need the Google Earth application to view the KMZ file that contains SRTA’s bus routes. You will need an unzipping software to open STRA’s KMZ file once you download it. If you do not have Winzip or another unzipping software installed on your computer you can click here to download a free version.
2. Once you have installed Google Earth, click HERE to download SRTA’s KMZ file. This will start the download of the KMZ file.
If a file download prompt asks you if you would like to open or save the file, choose Open File.
3. Click on the file and Google Earth will then ‘fly’ you to the SRTA service area. From here, you can zoom into the map and see a bird’s-eye view of SRTA’s system routes, individual bus stops, and their respective information. You will also notice on the left hand side a list of all SRTA bus routes and stops. You can choose whether to hide or show bus routes and stops by removing/adding the check mark.
