Google also announced an update to the Google Maps for Android app (version 6.10)
Google announced that its Maps now feature more than 1 million public transit stops across the world. You can now find schedules for more than one million bus, train, subway or tram stops worldwide, in nearly 500 cities including New York, London, Tokyo and Sydney.
“Since 2005, we’ve collaborated with hundreds of transit authorities around the world to make a comprehensive resource for millions of riders to find out which bus, train, subway or tram can take them to their next destination,” Christopher Van Der Westhuizen, Software Engineer, Google Maps, wrote on the company blog.
“We’ve made some changes to theTransit lines layer, so that you can select a specific mode of public transportation (train, bus, tram or subway) to display on the mobile map, hiding the other modes. This is helpful in areas where there is a tight concentration of several types of public transit,” Van Der Westhuizen added.
Now, whenever you search for a city or postal code in Google Maps for Android, the borders of that region are highlighted. New tabs have been added to ‘My Places’which will help you access all information from a single place. 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
