Google Adding Real Time Arrivals
Update: Here's Google's own post announcing this.
The Oregonian is reporting this morning that Google is adding real time transit vehicle information to Google maps.
TriMet and a handful of other cities are the first being rolled out.
A couple of stops I checked this morning are showing real-time alert information, but the actual arrivals still seem to be scheduled times.
I wonder if this means Google now has a defacto standard for arrivals feeds? Lack of such a standard has been a significant issue.

Join Google, and thousands of others, in their endeavor to stop PIPA!
PROTECT IP Act, or PIPA, threatens all of our first amendment rights. It would enable the government to block access to sites, ending the Internet as we know it. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon cautions, “The collateral damage of this approach is speech, innovation and the very integrity of the Internet.” We need to fight together against this travesty: send our letter to Congress here! http://act.demandprogress.org/act/pipa_letter/?source=tf
Even the experts say PROTECT IP is not the way to protect intellectual property rights; a study composed by internet experts including Paul Vixie of Internet Consortium and Danny McPherson of Verisign states, “[PIPA’s DNS targeting strategy] would likely prove ineffective at reducing online infringement.” Why risk our own internet freedom for a bill that will prove “ineffective” at achieving its aims?
The Motion Picture Association of America claims that the 24,000 who have already sent our letter to Congress are false identities used by Demand Progress to bolster our numbers.
Prove the MPAA wrong and stand up for your rights by sending out this letter: http://act.demandprogress.org/act/pipa_letter/?source=tf
