The majority of India's working class depends upon public transport for their daily route to work. This uses the power of Google's live traffic data and public bus schedules to calculate delays and provide accurate travel times.

The new set of features also allow users to see the entire route starting from their home to the arrival station and vice-versa with the help of the new mix commute suggestion feature.

Google Maps in India has been updated with three new features for public transport including buses, trains, and auto-rickshaws. This is the first product of its kind - launching first in India - enabling you to know how long your bus trip will take when factoring in live traffic conditions.

Unfortunately, the speedometer doesn't seem to be widely available yet, but the good news is we've received reports of it showing up in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, India, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the USA, which probably means Google is opting for a slow server-side rollout like it's used to. It is now live in Delhi, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune, Lucknow, Chennai, Mysore, Coimbatore, and Surat.

The holiday traditionally lasts one to three days and is eagerly anticipated after the month of fasting. Birmingham's Eid in the Park attracted more than 100,000 people in Small Heath Park despite the rain.

Finally, journeys that combine auto-rickshaw and public transport in Maps will get directions support.

The real-time status of trains will also be shown by Google Maps. Whether any of the trains are delayed will also show up in real-time.

Since the availability of seats remains to be another common challenge with train journeys, we hope Google incorporates the information within the feature to help users make better decisions while planning their train journeys using Google Maps.

Like most new Google features, the speedometer appears to be rolling out in stages. Enter your email to be subscribed to our newsletter.
