Starting today, commuters in Kolkata will be able to get real-time bus information in Google Maps. Google has teamed up with the West Bengal Transport Corporation (WBTC), to add real-time information about bus arrival times for Kolkata on Google Maps. This service is currently enabled for key WBTC transit routes and is scheduled to be expanded to the remaining routes in the future. This is the first launch of real-time transit information for Google Maps in India.

Kolkata residents that need directions using public transport should follow these simple steps:

• Open Google Maps app on your Android or iOS device

• Enter your destination and tap the ‘get directions’ icon. If it’s not already selected, tap the ‘transit’ icon (the little tram) to view times, bus/train numbers, routes and more. You’ll see

the real-time arrival information in green.

• Tapping a recommended route lets you view more information on the route’s stops.

• Tap the bus stop to see a listing of all arriving buses, where relevant real-time info is depicted by the green beacon.

Alternatively, it is possible to access real-time bus information by searching for a particular bus stop, tapping its name and its listed bus numbers. One will then see a listing of all buses arriving, with the location-enabled buses displaying their real-time ETA from the stop.

Google Transit is a feature of Google Maps designed to plan once public transport trips quickly and easily. Just search for where you want to go and Google Maps will show you how to get there using public transport from your current location. Google Transit is available on Google Maps for Android, iOS as well as the web.
