Google transit makes LA public transit easier

Now that the MTA has placed their info into Google Transit, getting around by public transit has gotten a lot easier here in LA.

Tomorrow, I need to head down near MacArthur Park. A quick check of Google Transit gives me all I need, including departure and arrival times and even walking directions at the beginning and end of my trip.

While I could have probably figured out this trip by myself, using printed schedules and maps from MTA's site, Google makes it simple and puts it into an interface I am already used to for driving directions.

If you live in LA, or are visiting, give Google Transit (and public transit) a try.
