Google updates transit maps, adds UK and more

Getting around on public transit can sometimes be a chore. Changing buses and trains and subways can prove a task for the unsavvy commuter. There have long been apps that attempt to help people with this, including many mobile mapping services.Now Google Maps is adding a plethora of new transit routes. The search giant announces  the addition of all routes covering Great Britain, claiming it can get travelers from “Land’s End to John O’Groats” — not quite the Orkney Islands, but you’ll be close. In addition, Google is also now covering Vancouver, in British Columbia, Canada and also Chicago. The latter contains Wrigley Field, and promises to get Cubs fans to and from games faster than ever. Sorry, it won’t help your team win the game though.
