We’re always happy to see more Australian public transport systems added to Google Maps, so we’re rejoicing that Tasmania is now featured. But it reminds us, yet again, that Melbourne, Australia’s second-biggest city, still isn’t included.
That’s not Google’s fault; it needs to source `the information from the Victorian Department of Transport, which has been promising it for years but failing to deliver. Get it sorted, Victoria!
The Tasmanian data covers bus services in Hobart, Launceston and Burnie. It’s accessible both on the web site and through Google’s iOS and Android apps.
