A new update to the Google Maps app provides real-time notifications so you know when to get off public transit

A new update for Google Maps, the app that provides GPS navigation and traffic, transportation and business information, helps travelers on public transport by guiding them through each stage of their journey. With real-time updates as you ride on a bus or train, the app will tell you when it’s time to get off as you reach your stop. These are also scrollable, so you can view all the upcoming steps along the way at any point during your trip.

Once you’ve searched for directions in the app, simply tap the ‘Start’ button at the bottom of the screen to begin receiving the updates, which handily continue to appear on the Android lock screen.
