Google Transit now on Google Maps


Google Transit went ahead and moved out of the Labs and onto Google Maps today.  Google Transit has been available for a while, but now when you search for directions on Google Maps, you’ll see an option to “Take Public Transit”.  Click on that and you can completely plan your trip and print out an itinerary to take with you.  You can also compare the cost of driving your own car to the cost of taking public transit.  Unfortunately, Google Transit is only available in 10 states and Japan, so you may not see an option to “Take Public Transit” when you’re searching for directions on Google Maps.  Here’s my screencast tour of Google Transit:

  2. Thanks Pilaf! Hopefully they have GTransit available where you live.
