Google Maps Got New Updates to Help You Better Plan The Transit Ride

Some Google Maps users were getting commute related questions from the last couple of months.

Google Maps Got New Updates to Help You Better Plan The Transit Ride

Google Maps app is already reigning in the web mapping ecosystem and to add more teeth to it; Google has recently added a new transit crowdedness predictions feature that will let the user know about the congestion in the public transports.

Google Maps congestion prediction feature is rolled out in 200 cities around the globe. The new feature is expected to show live traffic on Google maps and will help the commuters to plan their transit ride better and the user can head out accordingly.

Google will furnish the congestion data based upon the commuters last rides. It has come to light that from the past few months, Google was popping questions to some users to help with details about the level of the crowdedness of their transit trips.

The user reported that after completing their trips, Google Maps for iOS and Android showed them four options, namely:

  • Many empty seats;
  • Few empty seats;
  • Standing room only;
  • Cramped standing room only.

So, it’s evident that Google has collected enough data to combine it with its AI-enabled apps to figure out the live traffic information.

Along with this, the app will be getting real-time information direct from local transit agencies, which will help in knowing if the bus will be late, how long will be the delay, and other similar details based upon the traffic conditions along the route.

The new update from Google will be add-on other exciting features that were rolled in the last few months like Incognito mode, parking locations, real-time speeds, and traffic jam crowdsourcing.

With Google maps traffic prediction, it clearly vents out Google’s aim to retain millions of users who are using its navigation app daily and will be a boost to stay at the top among other similar apps.
