Google Maps gets real-time transit journey notifications

Some may have received the update already so others will definitely follow. However, unlike previous iterations, it will then give you live updates about your particular journey, be it by bus or train, similar to how the app gives directions for driving, walking, or biking.

Google hasn't dropped any hints about when the Maps update might go live, but it's expected to roll out soon. These updates will appear within the app when you have it open as well as on the lock screen during your trip.

Most importantly, this new update will notify you when to get off your bus or train when you're closer to your stop.
