Google Launches Transit Mapping Service

Google is testing its new transit trip planning service in six U.S. cities.

Transit riders in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania are some of the first to benefit from the latest venture from Internet search firm Google.

"The project, available at, allows a user to quickly and easily find what bus to catch, where to catch it and how long it will take to reach the destination.

'It lets users get information on how to get from Point A to Point B using only public transportation,' Avichal Garg, product manager for Google Transit, said in an announcement last night from Google headquarters in Mountain View, Calif.

Other cities involved in the startup at midnight last night were Eugene, Ore.; Seattle; Tampa, Fla.; and Honolulu."
