Google Maps will soon track your public transit journey in real time
by Alan Friedman / Dec 11, 2017, 11:36 PM
The directions are pretty simple. Use Google Maps to route your transit directions. Once the new feature is up, you'll see a start button near the bottom of the screen that you press for Maps to start tracking your location on public transport. According to a story published on Monday, Google Maps will even remind you when you are getting close to your stop and when to exit the bus or train. This will come in handy if the gentle vibrations of the vehicle you're riding on, are rocking you to sleep.
There is no word when Google Maps will start to carry this new feature. For those of you visiting or living in a big city where it is easier to get around with public transit than with a car, this new feature is going to come in handy.

Even if I hate Android since its existence is due to Samsung S1 which was a copy of the first iPhone, but I respect Google Maps. It is by far the best navigation app.....

Hate is a strong word, fella. iPhone did to cellphones what T-Bucket did to automotive industry or perhaps what Harley Davidson did to 'horse industry', now known as motorcycle industry. But do I say "God Bless Mr. Ford" every time I put a key in my truck's ignition? Do you expect me to? The world will forget Steve Jobs just like how it forgot Henry Ford, William S. Harley, William A. Davidson, The Wright brothers, Enzo Ferrari or perhaps Guglielmo Marconi who invented the radio on which YOUR iPhone relies. Wipe your tears, young man, and get over it. The world is a cruel place to be! No matter what we do; we have no past; no future... We have no tomorrow, yet we still long for the future...

Google map and android both are different thing. One is map service and other is operating system. Are apple fanboys really this dumb.

It is very dumb to hate an open platform because a different company copied the one you prefer.... And it is even dumber to keep on doing it in 2017 when everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY, copies each other features.... innovation would be stalled otherwise. Apple has copied SO MANY features from Android, and the same can be said for other OEMs copying Apple... but in the end that is a good thing... Apple wouldn't has have Touch ID if it didn't copy the Motorola Atrix... and it wouldn't have Face ID, without Windows Hello (surface pro 4, surface book 2015). How about your Notification Bar, or "widgets", or control center... its all inspired, copied or based on Android OEMs previous efforts The open apps card deck, and the gesture UI on the iPhone X is heavily inspired on Palm's WebOS... So please stop being such salty with your comments and simply post the positive part of them........ And with that in mind, I agree with the part of your post after the comma.

Google Maps used to have this feature before. I remember using it when I lived in San Diego. It was really useful for someone like me who had never used public transit before. I am glad they are bringing it back.
