Google Transit, Google Maps transit stop icons updated

Google Transit has been updated to include 5 new US transit networks:


Google Transit is a Google Maps powered tool that lets you "create your own transit trip, complete with itineraries and maps". You simply enter your start and end points and Google Transit uses transit schedules and the time of day to determine your best path to get there, in the most efficient way possible (transit, walking etc..).. For more on the service check here for more details.

With the announcement of these updates by Chris Harrelson, a Software Engineer on the Google Transit Team, also comes another transit related announcement for Google Maps: New cities have been added that feature transit stop icons directly on Google Maps: Dublin, Ireland and Linz, Austria, and 12 cities in Germany: Augsburg, Bielefeld, Bochum, Bunde, Dresden, Jena, Karlsruhe, Kassel, Lubeck, Mainz, Rostock and Trier.
