Subway Route Planners with Google Maps

Subway Path Finder

Subway Path Finder is a Flash based route finder for a number of subway systems around the world. Currently the application works for LA, New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Barcelona, Madrid, Moscow, Tokyo and Mexico City.

To start using the application you first need to select which city's subway system you want to use. Once you have selected a city a map of its subway system will load. You can now select any of the subways stations as your starting point and destination by simply clicking on any of the stations displayed on the map.

Once you have selected the route an animation will play showing your route and any changes you need to make on the journey. Two Google Maps are also displayed to show your starting station and destination station on a street map.

The application also comes with the option of getting a route from any location to museums, restaurants, theatres, nightclubs and hospitals. When you choose to view a route to any of these points of interest the Google Map also shows you your walking directions from the nearest subway station to your choice of museum, hotel etc.
