You can bookmark a results page in Transit mode. Here's an example linke (I got it by searching for directions and then copying the link URL)
If you're using Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc., you can set this as a search shortcut if you're using going to (or from) a usual location. This would let you type
transit destination-address in your address bar to open up directions to your destination.
Here are instructions for Chrome (you can adapt them for Safari or Firefox):
- Right-click in Chrome's address bar and choose Edit Search Engines...
Under Other search Engines, add a new option with the following -- you may have to scroll to the very bottom of the list)
- Add a new search engine:
- URL with %s in place of query:
http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=HERE&daddr=%s&dirflg=r&mra=ltm&t=m&z=8 (replace HERE with your starting address, replacing spaces with + e.g. "100+Main+Street,+Sometown+TX+10000"
Chrome will auto-save your new search engine, and you'll be good to go.
