In February,2018, Google Maps for iOS got an update that brought users real-time transit and driving information. In March, a further update brings the app to version 4.47 and in line with the Android version, with additional transit details and a helpful restaurants feature that shows the average waiting times of over a million sit-down eateries around the world.
The app displays average waiting times hour-by-hour throughout the day, tells you how long the average wait is and also when a restaurant’s peak hours take place. So no more standing in line for hours to try the latest food craze (unless that’s your thing). The update also makes finding reviews for specific restaurants a more intuitive process.
The update also provides more information on public transit systems, indicating exactly which entrances you need to enter based on your travel criteria.
This feature is available in New York, Hong Kong, Taipei, Paris, Los Angeles, Delhi, Moscow, Singapore, Madrid, Barcelona, Kiev, and Budapest, with more in the pipeline.
Google Maps also recently pushed an update to make wheelchair accessible routing an option when planning to travel via public transit.In addition, the new update also includes more information when traveling by public transit, letting you know which entrance you need to go into.
