A new partnership between Google and the Chicago Transit Authority means the Internet search giant can help you find your way around the city whether you live here or are visiting from out of town.

CTA bus and rail directions are now part of Google maps. The city says the information is available in multiple languages.

Google already provides transit information on dozens of cities in the United States and around the world.

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, CTA President Ron Huberman and Google leaders unveiled the new partnership at a morning news conference.

Huberman says there's no cost to the CTA. And CTA riders can still also use the Regional Transportation Authority's trip planner.
