Information and Public Transport

There is a good post on the difficulty of taking public transport, especially trains, in California, on Joel Ellinwood's CD&R blog on Transit Tales. I attended a conference organized by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport and Innovation (BMVIT) on Monday where one of the speakers discussed the lack of information available on public transport, when one of the audience disagreed with him saying that in fact plenty of information is available, the speaker replied, it's available somewhere, but not inside peoples' heads. I think Ellinwood's piece highlights this fact, a transit geek could probably answer all his questions, but for the rest of us (and for all of us when we travel!) public transport information is still too hard to find and understand.
