Google today announced a new update for Google Maps coming to both the iOS and Android apps. The new update aims to improve public transportation with live traffic info for buses and crowdedness predictions for when people get to their destination.
Here’s what’s new with live traffic info for buses:
Google Maps is launching live traffic delays for buses in places where we don’t already have real-time information direct from local transit agencies. You’ll now be able to see if your bus will be late, how long the delay will be, and more accurate travel times based on live traffic conditions along your route. You’ll also see exactly where the delays are on the map so you know what to expect before you even hop on your bus.
Me during my commute: MOVE. THAT. BUS.
Now you can see real-time delays and how crowded your bus is on your way to work 🙌
