Google Transit

In other Google News: Google Transit, which seems to be an in-house mashup of Google Maps and public transit data. It calculates costs and displays bus and rail routes and times; the examples give some idea of the parameters you can enter: not only addresses, but also leave-at/arrive-by times. Portland, Oregon only at the moment, with more presumably to follow. Not yet Safari compatible (sigh). Via Google Blog; see also WorldChanging.
