Google Maps Get Pune & Chennai Transit Info

Google has added Pune city bus service (PMPML) public transport information to Google Maps, allowing commuters to access transit information on the maps. This is the fifth Indian city they’ve added transit information for, following the Chennai MRTS, Delhi Metro Rail, Kolkata Metro, and Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (bus) information. “Commuters in Pune can now find out bus schedules and routes for 320 of PMPML buses via Google Maps on desktop and mobile”, Kiran Bapna, New Business Development & Manik Gupta, Product Manager, Google Maps & Local Search, Google India, write in a blog post.

Google is, however, yet to add bus information for Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai, and what is really missing, is traffic information. Perhaps, with Google in the process of partnering with local bus transportation companies, they can also look to embed GPS devices which will help track exact bus locations, estimate transit time better (currently Google Maps travel time estimates are not very accurate). In the meantime, SatNav and MapMyIndia are trying to get traffic information in completely different ways:
