Hi all,

Where was this for all the years that I worked in NYC and used the bus & subways every day??

Then again, 18 years ago, when I moved out of NYC, smartphones hadn't yet been invented.

Google Maps to deliver live transit updates

Google Maps to deliver live transit updates | ZDNet

Here’s a Google project that everyone can support. Google Maps is being upgraded with new live transit updates so you know just how late that bus is going to be.

Available information will include both live and scheduled departure times, route maps and service alerts.

Transit riders will be able to view up-to-the-minute updates either via Google Maps on in a browser or on a mobile device as long as it is running Android 1.6 or higher. That shouldn’t be too hard to come by for Android users these days.
