Code the Road: Google Maps turns 10, will you catch the bus?
Code the Road is the name of the trip, and the Google Maps bus will be making stops along the way to Walt Disney World in Florida, departing San Francisco this afternoon. If you near one of the scheduled stops, you can check out the fancy digs and learn about what it means to code if you want.
The first scheduled stop is in Logan, Utah, at the iFit ICON Heath and Fitness 5K treadmill run. From there, the bus will also stop in Colorado, Wisconsin, Illinois, New York, Virginia, Georgia, and finally Florida.
The old GM bus is freshly painted and ready to go. You’ll notice that there is nowhere to sit on the bus, the driver is going to be driving solo (with a motorcade entourage of Googlers coming along for the ride). Google is giving itself plenty of time (a month) to drive across the country, and with Google Maps, the crew is not likely to get lost. It will still be a long slow road though.
