Google added a new layer to its own mapping application to show transit routes in the 400+ cities where it has data. The result is an easy way to see nearby bus and train stops on the web or on some mobile phones. Unfortunately, neither the data nor the imagery is available in the API version of Google Maps.
Google now has over 400 cities included in its transit service. That means each of those organization provides a feed so that the search giant can give accurate routing, schedules and fares. So, why isn't it easier for the average developer to access this data?
