Google Maps UK Adds Traffic Information
By Tony Ruscoe

Google Maps UK has finally added live traffic data to the major roads in England*. As with other areas in Google Maps that have traffic data enabled, you can also let Google predict what the traffic situation will be like on any day at a specific time.

In other Google Maps news, NYC has just got Google Transit directions, which allows users to plan their public transportation routes online. You can visit the Google Transit site to see which other cities also have this functionality.

[Thanks Peter!]

*It seems this isn’t available for Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales yet.
