Google now brings real time public transit Info to Google Maps

Last December, the MTA rolled out a new app for smartphone that provided up-to-the-minute tracking for seven New York City transit lines and they are still expanding. Meanwhile, Google has joined the party by adding live schedule information in Google Maps. Google is working to upgrade NYC’s entire subway system for tracking. This project will take a few years to complete. It is really a convenient feature for anyone who rides these trains daily. In addition, Google also has been working with the Utah Transit Authority to add schedule data for buses and trains for Sity Lake City. Another good news for Washington, DC riders now can be able to access to live service alerts too.

Senator Claire McCaskill made a comment in which it said that she made a promise to introduce a legislation to force the FAA to be flexible about this rule because she doesn’t think it is fair that airline pilots and flight attendants do use iPads during flights awhile passengers are still restricted with it.
