  • Google Maps will soon tell you when it's time to get off your train or bus

While Google Maps always did a good job of giving you detailed transit directions (though it's often nowhere as good and useful as CityMapper's more detailed directions), the process generally involved keeping track of your own progress along the route. The new feature will notify you as and when you are about to reach your final destination.

The new feature will give people guidance and interactive real-time notifications for their journey, so they will know when to get off the bus or train.

If you press it, you'll begin getting updates on your journey.

To activate the feature, users input their destination (as usual) and hit a new "start" button on the bottom of the screen. According to a report from TechCrunch, Maps may soon get another significant function: real-time tracking on public transport. Additionally, the app will also be reminding you to get off at your train station or bus stop when you get close to it. You have Google now to tell you where you are or when to get off.

Hannibal Buress Arrested in Miami After Heated Argument with Cops

After searching for directions in Google and pressing start as with a conventional journey the app will give live updates and reminders to let you know when you are nearly at your stop.

Over time, the new style will also appear in the apps, websites and experiences offered by companies that use Google Maps APIs as well. So if you're somewhere you're not familiar with or just exhausted, you'll get a reminder which stop to hop off at.
