Ahead of the London Olympics, Google have been updating their Maps service, now adding real time service alerts for the London Underground.
If you’ve ever travelled on the London Underground you’ll know how hectic it can get down there. There is so much going on all the time that it can be difficult to keep up, unless you’ve been using the service for years. Google have introduced the new service alerts so they’re easy for anyone and everyone to use.
You’ll be able to plan routes, check times and see delays all on Google Maps. A very neat feature Google have also added is the ability to see planned engineering works, so you won’t ever be caught off guard and can plan a journey way in advance.
The service won’t just be limited to your computer browser though, you’ll also be able to do all the above on your Android phone.[source]
