Google announced that the Montreal area is now added to Google Transit. Montreal, Canada being the place where I live and work at the moment, and being a user of public transport, this is obviously a welcomed addition. The main interesting element to me is Google managed to have many different transport organizations of that urban area to work together to share their routes using the common GTFS feed format.
From my inbox, this Fagstein blog entry provides additional information on Montreal transit networks.
