Google Adds Transit Data to Maps

Google has been showing locations of train, bus or subway stops on its maps, but now those locations will link directly to more detailed information about a specific station, route, or schedule, according to the Google LatLong blog. An example shows data for the NYC subway at 59th St – Columbus Circle Station, New York.

Transit info is gathered from a city’s transit agency, geographic data companies, or other sources. A city transit organization can submit their data to Google for inclusion via a text file feed.
