For the last year or so, Google has been offering a public transportation information service called Google Transit. As we've said before, this is a slick idea that will not only help you plan your trip by bus or rail (in select areas), but will also give you a bit of a cost comparison between riding and driving. Now, you no longer need to go to Google Transit for this information, as it's been officially opened and is nicely integrated with the more popular Google Maps. That's not all that's different: the cost information has unfortunately disappeared from the information display. Guess they didn't like my idea.

There's a list of areas which have their public transportation system information in the Google system after the jump.
