Google Maps gets live train tracking, bus travel estimates

Google has introduced three new features to Google Maps in India. These include live train tracking, bus travel estimates and mixed-mode directions results. 

The live train tracking feature allows users to track the location of various trains in real time. It is especially useful for commuters who want to know at what time their train is expected to arrive at a specific station. Users can also view the list of trains operating between two locations.

The bus travel estimate feature gives an estimate of the time required to reach a certain destination by bus, based on live traffic conditions. This feature has been introduced in Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune, Lucknow, Chennai, Mysore, Coimbatore and Surat. 

The mixed-mode directions results feature shows the total time required to complete a journey using multiple transport options. These may include, walking or trains, buses, rickshaws, etc.
