Google Maps update brings two new important features for commuters1
Since transit schedules aren't always accurate due to real-time traffic conditions, Google has decided to launch live traffic delays for buses, a new tool that will feed Maps users with real-time info directly from local transit agencies.
It will allow Google Maps users in select cities to see if their bus will be late, how long the delay will be, as well as more accurate travel times based on live traffic conditions along their route. The new feature will be visible on the map too, as you'll be able to see exactly where the delays are on the map so you know what to expect before you get your bus.
Starting today, both new features will be available in Google Maps in nearly 200 cities around the globe on both Android and iOS.
