Google Launches Transit for Mumbai [BEST Buses and Local Trains]

Google Transit was first launched for Bangalore, then Pune and is now available for Mumbai.

“Knowing that life in Mumbai revolves around trains and buses, it gives us immense pleasure to announce the availability of BEST Bus and Mumbai Local train routes and schedule information on Google Maps. This information is available both on desktop and on mobile for millions of commuters in Mumbai, arguably the most used public transportation network in India. Transit on Google Maps already includes information for Delhi Metro, Bangalore and Pune bus services in India in addition to 450 cities worldwide.”[source]

Given that Google Transit mandates GPRS connectivity, do you find the service useful vis-à-vis M4Mum which is available as a free downloadable and delivers bus information (sans GPRS).
