Google Maps is adding a helpful new feature for commuters who tend to lose track of time during bus or train ride. It will now send a push notification when the user is approaching their destination.

“It’s much easier for mass transit travellers to doze off or get distracted and miss their intended stop. Now, you’ll get a notification that’ll make staying on the train or bus too long less likely,” The Verge reported late on Friday.

Google Maps provide turn-by-turn notifications for driving directions and now, the addition will make the app send a push notification when the user is approaching their stop.

This feature will especially help Android users when they use public transit.

Log into Google Maps on Android smartphone, enter a destination, select directions for transit and tap on the route you want to take to use the new feature.

The concept, however, is not completely new.

Transit — a public transit app and mapping service based in Canada has a “Go” feature that takes the user through every step of a bus or subway ride.
