Google Maps now real-time for Chicago Transit

Chicago commuters can now use Google Maps to find out if their bus or train will be delayed, canceled, or on time.  Starting this week, Google Maps is introducing the new technology to 6 locations; Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, the UK, the Netherlands, and Budapest.

Google has made it easy to see at a glance how long you'll be waiting, if the bus/train is coming early, and when it is departing.  This new technology helps transit users plan their commutes, and allows them to quickly see alternative options in case they miss the bus/train.
