Google has reduced the hassles of finding the train times for Indians, by adding the Indian railway schedules on Google Transit. The feature has started with eight cities, including Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, New Delhi and Pune. The updated information about 12,000 trains, along with the details of bus and metro routes from these cities will enable the public to plan trip quickly and easily. Google Transit is available on Google maps on Android and iOS devices.


Google Transit feature performs like the earlier version, where the users can simply type the destinations into Google map and press ‘Get Directions’. The public transit icon displayed will provide the options for metro, train and bus options.

“Google Transit is part of our effort to make Google Maps more comprehensive, accurate and useful for millions of people around the world who take buses, trains, metros or trams to their next destination. We hope that the addition of the Indian Railways schedules pan India and updated information for eight cities to Google Transit in India will make it a little easier to plan your next trip” said Suren Ruhela, Director, Program Management, Google Maps.

Google Maps currently has the information on public transportation schedules for one million transit points worldwide, covering 2,800 cities from New York, Sydney, London and Tokyo.
