While the Kopacki’s skip town…

Google recently launched a new service called ”Google Transit”. The service is intended to make it easier to navigate public transportation systems. It cuts through the hassle of wading through various timetables and maps. Instead, you can just type your start and end addresses (and a time, if you like). In response, the system will tell you where to walk and what buses or trains to take. Right now, it only covers Portland, Oregon. But Google says other cities will be added soon.
