Actually, Google Maps has showed the NYC subway for a while now

You should hear Malatesta's tale about making it to the Oct. 6 launch of Windows Mobile 6.5 with just seconds to spare. It's classic. Especially the part about surviving the dude playing jazz flute. But that's for another time.

Anyhoo, what got him there in time for the keynote was Google Maps, and its inclusion of NYC subway maps. They've been there for a while now, but Google's recently publicly announced them as a feature in the Layers. To turn it on (or just test it if you're outside the city), point the map to NYC, then go to Menu>Layers and turn on the Tranisit lines. Zoom in and you can get station info. It's That simple.

Actually, not just NYC. It's been showing on the map here in Toronto, Canada for quite some time as well. Montreal's Metro is on there, and I'll bet most of North America's large transit systems are in there too.

We actually had the transit maps here before we got the traffic layer.
