'Google Transit' is a feature on Google Maps designed to help a user to plan a commute with just a few taps.

If a user wants to go to Sukhna Lake in Chandigarh, he/she needs to search for Sukhna Lake and Google Maps will show how to get there from the user's current location.

Google will also show bus routes and stops, including details such as departure and arrival times, the names of bus stands and even where to change buses.

Google Transit is available on Google Maps for Android and iOS as well as on browser.

Google Maps globally provides over one billion kilometres worth of transit results every day and has schedules for more than 2.5 million public transit stops worldwide.
