The idea here is simple, guiding you with real-time updates while you are on your transit journey.

With the help of this feature, Google Maps will be able to give its users real-time updates during transit by showing these updates on the Android lock screen. When you're about to start a new trip, you enter your destination, and press start, as one usually does when using the app for directions.

Maps will even remind you to get off your bus or train when you approach your stop, which should prove particularly useful if you're on the verge of falling asleep or visiting an area you're completely unfamiliar with. It will reportedly provide extra details about the journey including updates as they walk or ride on local buses or trains.

Lock screen notifications, which will also be extremely handy, are also on their way.

While Google Maps always did a good job of giving you detailed transit directions (though it's often nowhere as good and useful as CityMapper's more detailed directions), the process generally involved keeping track of your own progress along the route.

With this update, the same transit notifications become a bit more like using for walking, biking & driving, said the report. Google Maps will also notify you when you need to jump off, which is useful if you happen to be distracted by something.
