Locating Taxi Cabs with Google

Google Labs gives us Ridefinder. It shows in real time the location of available taxi-cabs in most major cities in the USA. With one click I can find out what cabs are available in Hyde Park and which cab company to call. I really hope that this idea graduates from Google Labs. Since I do not have any money to spend on cabs and the fact that Hyde Park is “cab-challenged” this would be more relevant to my life if it was extended to public transit. (CTA are you listening? Well then GIMME my $5 back for that damaged Chicago card!!!). If I could access ridefinder with public transit information on a PDA it would be supercool and very useful.
