It looks like Big Blue Bus finally jumped on the Google train! Today transit activists were excited to find that Google Maps offered transit directions via Big Blue Bus, something that has been desired for awhile now, even prompting a petition last month.

Neither Google or Big Blue Bus have made an official announcement about the feature, which could mean today's discovery is testing an that the tool could be turned off. Representatives from both Google Maps and Big Blue Bus were not immediately available for comment.

[Update: Google has confirmed that Big Blue Bus is officially a partner and that data is up and running strong.]
