Traveling on a bus or train is a good time to catch up on the latest news or get some rest…until you miss your stop.
A new feature on Google Maps for Android now tells you when to get off your bus or train. Google Maps will now send a push notification that tells you when to transfer or get off your bus or train. You can also track your progress along the way just like you can when driving, walking or biking.
The update also adds step-by-step navigation, departure times and ETAs for the next time you need to get on a bus or train.
To check out the new feature, head into Google Maps. Type your destination, select transit directions, then select your route. Tap the Start button and you’ll be on your way. And you don’t have to worry about missing your stop. The new notifications are also available for the iOS version of Google Maps.
