Google Quick Tip #10

Hmmm...what's the best way to get from the famous (heavy on the garlic) Stinking Rose Restaurant in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood to the Boudin's Sourdough Bakery in Fisherman's Wharf?


Our dear old friends at Google have recently added some new options under the "Get directions" link in
Google Maps. In addition to driving directions, there are now walking AND transit directions! For the transit directions, they estimate how much it would cost for gas if you drove vs. public transit fares. Combine these new features with the Street View feature, and you're set to show your guests around town the fastest route from point A to point B. Now if Google could only get the buses to run on schedule...
