A soon as you search your destination on the app you will get a ‘start’ button along with the route details after the update. Pressing the start button will start your journey and show the journey details with available buses and trains on time. Consider you are leaving for somewhere and getting late to catch the train the Google Maps will show the available train, the platform number and departure time at the point you reach the station. The idea behind the real-time details on the transit journey is to make the journey more convenient for Google Maps users. In addition to this, the notification will also be popping up on the lock screen of your smartphone. The Google Maps will also inform the user when it’s time to leave the train while reaching close to the desired stop.

However, the update is still in testing and there is no particular time frame given by the company for its release. Google Maps app has always been a true helper when it's come to find a way on the road. Along with the transit notification, the users can seamlessly continue their journey without looking for any other resources for real-time information. The Google Maps has experienced a lot of changes recently, including the removal of the calorie cup cake feature.

According to the recent Google news, the company also announced to launch a revamped version of the app soon.
