Transit Maps In Google Maps

    May 16, 2005

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.
