Way cool - interactive transit time mapping

From, interactive transit time mapping:

Where were those transit deserts again?

and file this under "not in Pittsburgh": Google starts live transit updates in Google Maps -

While we are on the subject of transit.  Remember how the example of Curibita could save our public transit?  and my retort?  Basically the argument back then really translated to an argument that we need to implement Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) here in Pittsburgh.  Well, there is a ranking recently out saying we do rank high on a list of best places for bus based transit.  But why?? According to this new ranking it's because we (already) use Bus Rapid Transit.  i.e. the thing Curibita was supposedly going to teach us how to do.  Have been for decades even.  Misidentifying the problem inevitably leads to misidentifying a solution.

That ranking probably came from data before recent cuts anyway.  We may see the day when the only Port Authority routes still operating are those running down the busways.

I'm at most 38 minutes from anywhere plausible. Hooray.
