Google to add transit maps for New York
But Bloomberg is reporting that Google Transit is about to add directions for the largest public transportation system in the country: New York City.
Earlier this year, Google added subway stop information to New York City maps. But there was no way to get directions from one stop to another. According to Bloomberg, Google is working with New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority and New Jersey Transit to develop the trip planner.
No word on how long you'll have to wait to get your New York subway directions from Google. In the meantime, you might want to check out HopStop, which recently launched a mobile version of its trip planner. Unlike Google, which currently has routes for smaller cities, Hopstop covers New York, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.
