Google Transit improvements

As posted on the Google LatLong blog, some nice enhancements have been made to Google Transit over the last few weeks, including coverage for:

  • Buses and light rail in Dallas, Texas
  • The Las Vegas Monorail
  • Humboldt County, CA
  • Thousand Oaks, CA
  • Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART)

As well as new transit stop icons in Google Maps for a bunch of cities in Germany:

  • Augsburg
  • Bielefeld
  • Bochum
  • Bunde
  • Dresden
  • Jena
  • Karlsruhe
  • Kassel
  • Lubeck
  • Mainz
  • Rostock
  • Trier

I’m rarely a transit user, but this tool must be very useful for those that rely on transit.  Full details in that LatLong post.
