Google India has rolled out the Transit feature on Google Maps in seven more Indian cities including Chandigarh, Lucknow, Vadodara, Indore, Mysore, Surat and Coimbatore.
With the new update, the Transit feature is now available in sixteen Indian cities - the seven newly added cities as well as Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Jaipur, Hyderabad, Pune, Ahmedabad.
“The new feature will help users better plan their commute around the city, and make it easier to get an overview of public transportation around them,” says Google.
Google Transit is a feature on Google Maps, which lets people plan their commute with only a couple of taps. For instance, if you’re going to Sukhna Lake in Chandigarh, just search for Sukhna Lake and Google Maps will show you how to get there from your current location. It will show you bus routes and stops, including details such as departure and arrival times, the names of bus stands, and even where to change buses.
Google Transit is not only available on Google Maps for Android and iOS, but is also available for the web.
