Google Maps feature mobile transit directions

6 Jun

So Google just posted this video to advertise that Google Maps now feature mobile transit directions.

The video mentions the directions are available in 50 major cities and users can select train, bus, etc. I think when they said train, they’re referring to the subway. If that’s the case, Amtrak Regional and Acela should be get onboard. The directions could list how to get the station and all of the departure and arrival times.

This is huge! Right now mapquest is the 8th most visited site frequented by mobile users. And now that Google offers transit directions, they will probably make the top ten. Maybe even the top three.

So take a look at the video and the Google mobile page to learn more.
