Now Check Transit Schedules With Google Maps


Today, search giant Google has added a new feature to Google Maps. By heading over to Google Maps from your PC’s browser, you can select “Transit”, which is located in the upper right corner. Once this is done you’ll see transit rail lines highlighted in yellow on your maps and transit bus lines highlighted in blue. Logos are present to show which train line you’re on and bus stops little blue bus icons.

Clicking on a transit station will open up a dialogue bubble about all of the lines that the station serves. For detailed info, click on any of the lines and a new screen will pop up showing you the near future schedules for all lines in the main area. In the lower right, Google Maps will show you which trains are coming in chronological order. Google Maps now also works the same way on your Android powered device. A cool little feature for those constantly on the go.
