Google also have their own XML-based transit specification, GTFS, which
appears to be similar although somewhat more limited. You can convert
TransXChange->GTFS, don't know if a tool exists for the other way.

I mention this because Google Australia announced that ACTION would be
integrating with Google Transit, to launch "late in June 2009".[1] The
integration process entails providing Google with a GTFS formatted data

So, it would seem, whatever needs to be done at ACTION's end has so far
taken over two years longer than someone first expected...
