Google Maps announced updates today for its tracking of live departure and arrival times for DC’s bus and subway system.
From the Google Maps blog:
Riders on the nation’s second largest subway, Metrorail in Washington, D.C., can now see live service alerts, including unplanned delays and scheduled track work, straight from Metro’s Control Center on Google Maps. To adjust your travel around the alerts you see, simply choose another suggested route or change your departure time.
Given DC’s previous attempts at tracking public transit arrival and departure times, we will be interested to see how the update will affect the accuracy of the tool.
