Google launches Transit Layer on Google Maps


The Transit Layer is a part of Google Transit.

While the main Google Transit product aims to provide full schedule information and routing, the Transit Layer overlays lines visually on Google Maps – offering transit information as an alternative to driving directions wherever possible.

For instance, if you want to visit the Tate Modern in London, search for the venue on Google Maps, click on ‘More' and activate ‘Transit', which will then show nearby Tube stations and the lines that serve them.

The full list of cities is Belo Horizonte, Berlin, Bordeaux, Brasilia, Cairo, Cape Town, Caracas, Chicago, Copenhagen, Dallas, Dortmund, Duisburg, Düsseldorf, Ekaterinburg, Essen, Frankfurt, Genoa, Guadalajara, Hamburg, Helsinki, Johannesburg, Kazan, Köln, Lille, Lisbon, London, Lyon, Madrid, Marseille, Medellin, Mexico City, Monterrey, Montreal, Munich, Naples, Nizhniy Novgorod, Oslo, Paris, Perth, Portland, Porto, Porto Alegre, Prague, Pretoria, Recife, Rennes, Rio de Janeiro, Samara, San Francisco, Santiago, Sao Paulo, Seattle, Strasbourg, Toulouse, Tunis, Vienna and Warsaw.
