The iPad edition of HopStop, the popular transit app included in our Apps For The Public Transit User AppList, has just arrived at a new update. Like its iPhone counterpart, HopStop for iPad provides directions by subway, bus, train, taxi, foot, or bike.

And now, the app lets you see transit fare calculations in all routes throughout New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, Connecticut, Westchester, and the Hudson Valley. The app now also supports 10 new markets in the U.K.: Scotland, North East & Cumbria, Northern Ireland, Yorkshire, Wales, West Midlands, East Midlands, East Anglia, South West (England), and South East (England).
