Hyderabad: Google Maps on Tuesday launched three new public transport features, including live train status, to help commuters in India. These features are now live in Delhi, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune, Lucknow, Chennai, Mysuru, Coimbatore and Surat.

Google Maps users in these cities will be able to see bus travel times from live traffic, get live train status for Indian Railways, and get mixed-mode commute suggestions that now combine auto-rickshaw and public transport.

"Transit navigation is one of the most popular Maps features in India, and we look forward to these new features that will bring more value to users," said Taylah Hasaballah, Product Manager, Google Maps, while announcing the new India-first features.

Google Maps users can view bus travel times based on live traffic. This uses Google's live traffic data and public bus schedules to calculate delays and provide accurate travel times.
