Google Transit expands

Today, Google expanded their bus trip planning system, Google Transit, from only working with Portland to include a number of cities, including Seattle. Brandon and I had worked on a similar system for Seattle a while back, though we've had our hands full with other things for a while now. Maybe we'll see what we can do to get it out soon.

Though I haven't tried it out myself since I am now down in San Francisco working on a brand new startup, I've been told that it can sometimes give silly results, like walking across the Aurora Bridge (yikes!).

So congrats to Google for getting multiple cities working--quite a task, I know. Here's to hoping the quality of the trips will soon be as good as what the local government sites provide.

Also, I'll try and start posting again here. =)
