Google Maps Adds New Commuting Features


Google Commute

Say goodbye to terrible commutes – Google Maps have released several new features today aimed at streamlining the daily commute. You can now see live traffic and transit information (which includes the ability to see where your bus or train is in realtime), and receive notifications (Android) on disruptions.

For those who commute via a number of methods, there is also a mixed-mode feature which combines information across all legs of your trip to give you a realistic ETA, and as extra perk for Syndey’s commuters they get information on how full the busses and trains are.

Never miss an interview or be late for work again (I wonder if it covers tide information for this chap) – Google Commute is set for release this week and is available on iOS and Android.
