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.
