Google Maps adds COVID-19 updates to inform travelers, commuters about their trip
Google Maps on Monday rolled out several new features for Android and iOS to keep travelers and commuters up to date on how COVID-19 might impact their trip. That includes information like travel restrictions and how crowded public transportation might be. TechCrunch earlier reported the news.
Transit alerts from local agencies will now show up in Maps to keep people informed about government mandates related to public transportation, such as whether services are unavailable or if masks are required. The alerts are now available in the US, UK, India, Mexico, France, Thailand, Spain, Netherlands, Columbia, Brazil, Argentia, Austria and Belgium. More countries will be added soon.
