It's not quite live yet, but Google would like you to know that Google Maps 6.10 is on its way to handsets by the end of the day. "What's new for me, the public transit user?" I hear you ask.

From today, users can now get directions within London using both bus routes and the Underground, too. Using your current location to determine the best route to take to your destination, the application will provide you with a series of instructions that mix walking with various other transportation options.
