Google Maps for Android updated, now has public transit schedules
Google Maps for Android just got updated to v6.10 which includes public transport schedules for more than one million transit stops worldwide, in nearly 500 cities including New York, London, Tokyo and Sydney.
They have made some changes in the Transit layer, users can now select a specific mode of public transportation i.e train, bus, tram or subway to display on the mobile map which will hide other modes and make the map less cluttered.
They have also updated station pages, which will show departure times lines serving the station and the distance to nearby stations. This information can be accessed by tapping 0n the name of the station on the map.
In addition to the above, there are a few more updates:
- Now, whenever you search for a city or postal code, the borders of that region are highlighted.
- Under My Places you’ll notice we’ve added new tabs, which will help you access all your information from a single place; from your saved maps for use offline to your starred places and Custom Maps created on your desktop.
- If you enable Location History, you’ll be able to browse the places you’ve been on a daily basis with an updated Location History dashboard.
