Google Transit: Now with Handy Google Maps

The geniuses at Google have upgraded their handy Google Transit bus, train and other public transportation mapping feature -- mentioned here and here on TreeHugger -- and integrated it into its more popular Google Maps. When searching for directions, just click "Take Public Transit" and your route, directions and even cost (with a comparison versus driving) will pop right up. Slick.
