For a few years now, Google has focused its attention on the Indian market when developing new features for Google Maps.

Two-wheeler mode was first introduced in the country, and Google also rolled out plus codes — short codes for locations that don't have a street address.

The company is now adding three new features aimed at public transit users in the country, starting with local bus times, according to a report by www.androidcentral.com/.

Google Maps provides you with information on bus schedules, but the app will now start leveraging live traffic data to give you a more accurate travel time.

All you need to do is enter your starting point and destination, and you'll be able to see the real-time travel time.

The feature is being rolled out in ten of India's largest cities: Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune, Lucknow, Chennai, Mysore, Coimbatore, and Surat.
