Google Maps now has public transport data for the entire UK

Google Maps now provides public transport directions for the entire UK, including bus, train, tram and ferry routes.

 

Available on both the desktop and mobile app versions of Google Maps, the update makes travelling across the UK easier than ever, and even automatically provides walking directions between different legs of your journey, such as between Tube stations and bus stops in London.

 

In all there are some 17,000 different public transport routes available across the UK; there’s also travel information from Traveline and National Express, and the mobile app for iOS and Android includes the option of ordering a taxi via the Uber Taxi app, if already installed on your handset.

 

David Tattersall, product manager for public transport in Google Maps, said: "You'll now know when the next trip is departing, how many stops and how far your walk is between each station. You can also pick your preferred method of travel and whether you'd rather walk less or make fewer transfers, so you can compare and choose the best option for you."
