Google announces India-first features for commuters
Kolkata: To help make the journey of public transport commuters more efficient and seamless, Google Maps on Tuesday announced three India-first features.
Google Maps users will be able to see bus travel times from live traffic across 10 of the largest cities in India. They will get live train status for Indian Railways trains and get mixed-mode commute suggestions that now combine auto-rickshaw and public transport.
Announcing the new India first features, Taylah Hasaballah, product manager, Google Maps, said: "Google Maps is being used by over a billion travelers to navigate and explore their world, wherever they are. And we at Google are focused on building Maps features that will help deliver a more relevant, accurate and reliable experience for commuters."
