Do you know high-quality online public transport route/trip planners? I'm looking for sites with recognized usability, most carrier-owned planners are bad or very bad from Human-Computer Interaction point of view.

Also: do you know any papers or works on trip planner GUI design patterns? Example: instead of expandable list with search results we can use the time graph with bars like in Nokia Transit - I just want to see more of such stuff. Thanks!
