Google Maps begins showing subway station layouts


Google seems to be enhancing their transit maps for Google Maps. Users have started noticing subway station layouts for several subway stations in New York City, as well as some in Japan.

The feature seems to be hit or miss for subway stations in other areas, as well as depending on whether you’re on desktop or mobile.

There doesn’t appear to be much detail outside of the general layout of platforms and the outline of the overall structures and entrances, so any internal details — like the location of stairs, escalators, ticket machines, and the like — still requires your attention when you get to the actual subway station.

Google has yet to make any formal announcement about this change, but we’ll share more details as we find them. Search your local stations to see if the feature is live for them. Make sure you’re in transit view, otherwise it may not show.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
