Have Google, Will Travel

Google_2According to this article, Google could soon become your primary resource when navigating the public transportation system in New York City.  That certainly sounds like a smart idea on Google's behalf as it not only leverages their various mapping technologies but also gives them another foot in the door for local advertising.

Although the article is all about using Google for subways, trains, etc., why would they stop there?  How long will it be before Google jumps into the travel guide business?  If they're going to show you how to get from Wall Street to Yankee Stadium tomorrow, there's no doubt that some day they'll look to help you do the same for your trip from New York to San Francisco...

Google is already my de facto travel guide.

If I'm thinking about a vacation destination Google queries are my first stop, and also after I've booked the travel to firm up details I want to experience like attractions and dining out.

So, I think they are already in that business. And they monetize it with sponsored links.
