Live Transit Updates In Google Maps


Starting now, Google Maps for mobile and desktop can tell you when your ride is actually going to arrive with new live transit updates. Google Maps partnered with transit agencies to integrate live transit data in four U.S. cities and two European cities: Boston, Portland, Ore., San Diego, San Francisco, Madrid and Turin.

When you click on a transit station or plan a transit route with Google Maps and there are delays or alerts related to your trip, you’ll now see “live departure times” (indicated with a special icon) and service alerts.
