Google Maps Adds Transit Alerts

In New York Google Maps now includes transit alerts.

When you click on any of the 468 New York City subway stations labeled on Google Maps, you can now see whether any planned service changes are expected to affect that station. In addition, the relevant alerts will be included in the step-by-step transit directions pointing you wherever you’re going.

In the UK Google has also rolled out some new Street View. Last week Google Maps added panoramic imagery of the 2012 London Olympics. This week 10 Downing Street, the home of the British Proime Minister, has been added on Street View.

Also in the UK Google Maps has released its first Canal View imagery. Caen Hill on the Kennet & Avon Canal, and Pontcysyllte on the Llangollen Canal now have Street View imagery captured by the Street View trike.
