Google Maps will soon track your public transit journey in real time

Once the feature arrives, users will be able to search transit directions like they usually do, and indicate when they want to "start" a trip.

This update, which should be live soon, would bring the commute experience more in line with dedicated apps like CityMapper and Transit.

The feature will also offer live updates, including reminders to get off your bus or train when you are nearly at your stop.

It is very likely that this functionality comes as a direct result of the "Google for India" Initiative and this Google Maps functionality will be coming to other countries very soon.

Maps will even remind you to get off your bus or train when you approach your stop, which should prove particularly useful if you're on the verge of falling asleep or visiting an area you're completely unfamiliar with.

According to the Tech Crunch report, which seems to be based on insider-information, these updates would appear in the app, but also on the lock screen, allowing you to keep track of your current location at a glance.
