Software Integrates Google Maps And Subway System; Still No Good Way To Get To Brooklyn

Mister Snitch! has found a most intriguing program based on the free Google Maps software. The Interactive Transit Map allows you to click on a starting location and an end location and then tells the user which subway lines to take. The software integrates MTA subways, PATH, and the Light Rail, as well as the Newark Subway. The service is not bug free-- for instance, tell it you want to go from City Hall [New York] to Grove Street [Jersey City] and it sends you up the R/W line to 33rd Street. But still, we're impressed by the service, and think you should be too.
