Google just updated Google Maps. How to use its new transit tools

The Google Maps update offers useful public transit information.


To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Google MapsGoogle is rolling out a big update to its planning and navigation app for iPhone and Android that will give you more detailed information about what you’re facing if you use public transportation to get around.

Since its launch in 2005, Google has expanded Maps from a navigation tool to a fuller-featured travel and entertainment service that can help you do everything from make dinner reservations and manage trip itineraries to find EV charging stations along your route.

The update expands Maps’ usefulness for public transit riders, displaying how crowded or hot a route may be, as well as if security is normally present during the trip.
