In short: The transit authority has built its own trip planning service with some nifty features, like links to weekend/construction-related route changes. (Unfortunately, it’s not smart enough to actually use that information to help you plan your route. Next version?)
There’s also a nice subway-and-street map, which uses Microsoft’s interactive mapping system, a button to email yourself (or your BlackBerry) the directions it spits out, and a mobile edition. Not perfect, but the progress is encouraging.
(Also: What happened to the Google version?)
