Google Maps just keeps getting more powerful and more comprehensive. The latest enhancement to the tool is live transit information, which will be incredibly helpful to the masses of people who rely on public transportation to get around.

Google says that it now offers information for 100 million miles of daily public transit in 800 cities spread across 25 countries; that data includes everything from fares to departure times to estimated travel times.

There are more specific additions, too, including live departure times for seven lines of the subway in New York City and buses and trams in Salt Lake City as well as live service alerts for the Metrorail in Washington, D.C.

The Google Maps update is available for Android and iOS devices.

They say that "Information Is Power" and Google proves it daily.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Yeah but when most folks would look at it is when they are underground with no service, thus the app is useless there.
