Google Maps reportedly getting updates to its transit functionality soon

  • Google Maps will soon inform you when to get off train or bus via a notification

Users will be able to search for a destination and then tap "start" button at the bottom of the screen.

This update, which should be live soon, would bring the commute experience more in line with dedicated apps like CityMapper and Transit.

Users would be able to "start" and "end" a trip, during which they could scroll through the details, and receive updates.

The feature will also offer live updates, including reminders to get off your bus or train when you are nearly at your stop.

We expect this update to go live soon - and Google may already be testing it outside of its trusted tester community.

If you've ever had to use public transportation, you would know how stressful it can be making sure that you get off at the correct stop, especially if you haven't used the particular route before.

As well as sending you push reminders, they'll also appear on your device's lock screen, which is new for the app.

Google Maps is one of the tech giant's very useful services.

The goal is Google Maps to tell you important things like when to get off the bus and if your train is near your final stop, so you have time to prepare.

Google Maps is becoming smarter with every new update, and the shiny new makeover the app received back in November is a testament to that. In November, Google updated the look, and feel of the Google Maps app to better highlight information relevant to drivers, or users of public transportation for instance.

Google Maps has made our lives a whole lot easier. Google Maps recently introduced the motorcycle mode, keeping the large number of people traveling by motorcycles in mind.
