Google added three public transportation features to Google Maps in 2019. These features enabled users to check real-time train status for longer routes, get bus travel times from traffic in ten cities, and suggest movement showing auto-rickshaws and public transport.
Live Train Status comes in handy as it notifies train arrival time, schedule, delay status and many other information from the app. While there are many third-party apps that offer similar functionality, this feature on Google Maps can be useful for Android users who use budget devices with less storage.
