If you haven't noticed, it's winter. (Yes, yes... it's the American's talking... -SB) And if you don't have a car, getting around in the cold can be a nightmare. But Google Maps wants to help reduce the number of transfers you endure between trips. Hallelujah!
Less transfers can mean spending less time outside. It might take longer to reach your end destination, but if that means my extremities won't be frozen black by the time I reach the great indoors, so be it. The feature is live now under the public transit menu. [Google Maps via ReadWriteWeb]
