Google adds detailed transit schedules to Google Search app


Google noted today on its Google+ page that it’s added detailed transit schedules to the Google Search app for at least Android users.

Tap the microphone on the Google Search app and say, “From New York City to Boston by train.”

Google will now display detailed information for schedules and fares to the requested destination and also a countdown timer that will show how long until the next train or bus, for example. “And if the train ever gets delayed due to a maintenance issue or an accident, you’ll see a status alert in the results.” The feature appears to be limited to users in the U.S. currently.
