I'm a public transit kind of person. I think its excellent for the environment, it's a cost effective way to travel, and it doesn't have the stress of driving. So, when I had heard that Google Maps was getting a Transit layer, I became very excited. To view this layer, all you have to do is click on the More button and then Transit tab. The goal of this layer is to allow people to see public transit routes without having to look and try and interpret those nasty schedule maps. The full list of cities are available here, and be sure to check out the photos below. Finally, I say this about alot of Google products, bring this feature to Canada soon!!
