Personal train and bus reservations come to Google Now after latest update

Personal train and bus reservations come to Google Now after latest update
An update to Google Now, might help you when bad weather threatens to delay your travel by air. New cards will show up on your Android device, that will show alternative flight information in situations where there is inclement weather. The card will help users find ways around grounded flights or delays.

You know how Google Now goes through rental car and hotel reservation information on your Gmail account? It will now do the same thing with your bus and train reservations, and will send you a Google Now card to remind you of your reservations.

The update also includes bug fixes and the usual enhancements. With Cortana beginning to make some waves as the Windows Phone 8.1 virtual assistant, Google Now needs to keep offering the information you need, BEFORE you need it, to keep pace.

I notice if one asks "Show me my trips" or "Show me my itinerary" it'll give info gleamed from Gmail. One may also ask GN to "Show reminders"

All three OS AI rock now it seems. On course, which AI sorts through SMS for events and calendar dates, I thought GN did but I'm not sure now that email is a big deal?

Why do I never see any articles about Siri getting functionality updates? Hmm, weird...
