Google Maps massively improves UK public transport directions

Share

Excellent news for British users of Google Maps (so, almost everyone then). The company have announced that they’ve improved public transport directions – now pulling in data of every train, bus, ferry and tram in the country.

According to Pocket Lint, they’ve done a deal with Traveline – who track all of this data nationwide – as well as National Express to make directions even more accurate. This means that Google will now give you real-time directions between any two points in the UK – mashing up different forms of travel to get you to your destination. Brilliant.
