Google Adds Waze Feature To Improve Transit

 

Google is bringing the best features of Waze to incorporate it to Google Maps. Some examples include the rich incident reports feature that is used to improve navigation experience. Google Maps or Waze get information about the traffic ahead and various obstacles and then it reroutes you to a quicker route. Google owns both apps so it can bring Waze features to Google Maps. Google is trying to bring a new feature for public transportation. It will suggest the fastest route and give you navigation details in case you need to change buses and trains while travelling.

The company is also asking about how crowded the train is so that you can get available seats. During your trip Google Maps alerts you about your trip. This adds to the crowdsourcing data which will improve your transit experience.
