Google Now will notify you when it’s time to get off the bus


If you frequent public transportation, Google Now’s latest addition might help you during your next outing. The behavior studying software can now alert you when it’s time to exit a bus or train ride. Not exactly foolproof, Google Now may sound an alarm for saved locations like home or work and all you’ll need to do is tap it to activate it.

The integrated alarm notification appears to be separate from Android’s stock clock application and since public transportation support isn’t available in all areas, you’ll still want to keep an eye on your surroundings. However, like most of Google Now’s features, we expect that this will get better with time.
