Transit Maps In Google Maps

By Nathan Weinberg

Adrian Holovaty has whipped up a Firefox hack for Google Maps that allows you to see Chicago’s public transportation system. Its a GreaseMonkey extension, recompiled so you don’t need GreaseMonkey to use it. Adrian’s work has already inspired work on a Boston project, so hopefully someone will decide to handle the largest transit system in the world, New York. More so, I hope someone finds a way to do something more like the Google Maps / Craigslist housing mashup, so it isn’t dependant on a specific browser or specific installed extensions.

    An Associated Press story (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8146820/) also mentioned another free real estate site where you can find homes for sale by mapping your search results on a Google Map: http://www.cytadia.com
