Better yet, residents of New York will be happy with Google's latest unveiling. With more public transport options becoming available, Google are quickly updating the transit options in Maps in close to real-time:

Plus, our NYC-specific map has new layers: Find out which subway lines are open and where you can catch an MTA shuttle bus on our new public transit layer. We've also added information about food distribution points. Visit the map here.

It's good to see Google being so closely involved, helping out in more ways than one. Disheartening to see another American company, Apple, seemingly sitting on the sidelines twiddling their thumbs.
