The update adds to the existing public transport list feature of buses, trains, and cabs. The transit mode is ideal for comparing public transport options and learn when you need to leave to arrive at your destination on time.
Metro network in Delhi is one of the most used local train networks worldwide and the new Google Maps feature adds convenience to commuters as well as travelers in the city.
This also adds to the local public transport feature in Mumbai which allowed people in the city to track local train status — an update from July 2017.
Google Maps has slowly and steadily converted itself from a tool that was just supposed to help us get directions from point A to point B to a tool that finds and tells us useful information around either of those points and during the travel route too.
Earlier this week, the Google Maps app was updated with the new Parking Difficulty’ and ‘Find Parking’ features which will help users check for parking space at and around their destination.
Google Maps has been integrating multiple new features in its app which lets user see not only the route information but also book reservations at the destination restaurant, as well as see other relevant information such as takeaways and other utilities in the local area.
Earlier this month, Google also added a ‘Question & Answer’ section to Google Maps and Google Search. Other than that Ola Cabs were also integrated within the Google app where you can check out the estimated cab fare as well as the ride time.
