Google updates live transit for NYC, D.C. and Salt Lake City, which now shows live departure times for seven lines on the NYC Subway system (MTA), as well as for buses and trams in Salt Lake City (UTA) and subway in D.C. (Metrorail).
“With transit information in Google Maps you get pick-up locations, departure times, estimated travel time, and even fare amounts for 800 cities across more than 25 countries around the world,” informs Google.
Adding, “that’s information for 100 million miles of daily public transit trips at your fingertips,” Google said.
With these updates, Google says, “part of the millions of live transit schedule updates we process every day – you get instant access to the latest information right on Google Maps, making trip planning a cinch.”
To adjust your travel around the alerts you see, simply choose another suggested route or change your departure time.
