Mountain View's panoramic Street View may let you virtually explore Venice, dozens of North American parks and even the inside of an Oberon-class submarine, but until now, you had to figure out the train station on your own. Not anymore; Google's latest Maps update focuses on the journey, adding Street Views of over 50 train and subway stations, 16 international airports and even a cable car station in Hong Kong. Google pitches the new views as an easy way to hammer out the physical logistics of travel, though it seems to cater to international travelers: so far, almost all of the updated panoramics are located outside of US borders. Still, we can't complain -- Street View is now the fastest way to get through airport security.
