Google is pushing transit information closer and closer to its users. Yesterday it was announced that Google Maps for Mobile supports public transportation directions.
Enter the new version of Google Maps for mobile. This version (2.2) allows you to get transit directions in all the same places as the web version of Google Maps, including Chicago, the San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, Vancouver, and over 40 other cities in North America.
This version of Google Maps for mobile even has a few tricks not yet available on the desktop version of Google Maps. For instance, you can find the last transit trips of the day (to figure out how late you can stay at the party) and more easily browse through earlier or later trips. The My Location feature, available on most phones, also makes it easier to set the start point of your journey.
Unfortunately, the Windows Mobile version is still on version 2.1 which doesn’t have the transit hotness.
