Feature: Transport icons clickables

I noticed that the transport icons (bus, tram, metro ..) are now clickables
on Google maps. It will be cool if we can do the same thing with Google
maps API.

(But this should be a programmable option - many apps won't want so many
active markers).

Requested by:sutolotus, georgio 

Supported by: Frank (would like it in a tiny map search Google gadget)

We are planning a very cool implementation shortly using google maps and having these
icons clickable on our map would be a huge bonus to mass transit users.  The best way
for this to work would be to be to have some way to capture the data in order to
integrate it into our own maps but I would be happy even if they were just clickable
and displayed exactly as they do at

Since you labeled this ApiType-Javascript, does that mean we Flash API users
shouldn't expect support for transit?

This was originally requested for the JS API. If you're a Flash user interested in 
the same functionality, please file a new feature request. Thanks!

I too would love to see this feature as a selectable layer based on API calls.

Being able to get the public transit information through the API would be very cool
and useful!

Is this feature now available in v3?  I notice the icons in there, but not clickable for information?
Oct 6, 2012
Not that I know of.  The icons show up and the cursor changes to the hand like they'd be clickable, but nothing happens.  This is the closest info I can find:
Oct 8, 2012
Yeah i saw that.  That's a pretty easy implementation to get that on the map.  More or less, i'd LOVE the ability for the icons to be clickable and show the relevant transit information.

Can anybody tell me how enable click event of the transit stations on a map?
Dec 1, 2013
The transit layer is displaying properly, and at some zoom levels I'm getting a mouseover change to the clickable mouse icon, but no popup information on the transit nodes.

I'm also voting for this feature to get implemented within API. It is available on so why not in the API? Thanks.

As a paid google enterprise business developers.

The Google Map API's bus stop details are defintely welcome for immediate implementation to improve user experience for our paid clients.

Many of our clienteles are questioning the lack of bus details(transport detail) of their paid google map business vs the public google map. 

The major user groups are from these localised google maps.  Looking forward for Google Map release of API on Bus details available on public google map.

-Provide Bus station details
-Provide MRT train/ Subway services of a station details

Hong Kong
-Provide Bus station details
-Provide Tram station details
-Provide MTR train/Subway services of a station details

Malaysia Capital, Kuala Lumpur
-Provide Bus station details
-Provide Train station details

Thailand Capital, Bangkok

-Provide BTS train station details

Indonesia Capital,Jakarta
-Provide bus station details
-Provide train station details

Philippines Capital, Manila
- Provide Bus station details
- Provide train station details

Taiwan Capital, Taipei台北市/
- Provide Bus train station details
- Provide Metro train station details

Looking forward for Google support of this VOTE especially for the paid business users.

I'm curious whether those who've asked for this feature in the V3 API could not achieve the same and/or better given a Google TransitTM Feed Specification (GTFS)compliant feed such as we are about to use in Perth: -
