Google Maps includes Transit Data

Google Maps includes Transit Data


Formally they only way to access this for the 21 (most in the US) cities was via

But it seems from today that is now available via the Google Maps main portal.
Google Maps Now Includes Transit Data

The coverage hopefully expands and in due course 'city' commuters will be able to access it via mobile devices.
No European Cities to date.
