As the capital territory of India, Delhi is one of the busiest places in the country and also one of the hardest to navigate if you’re not familiar with its public transportation routes and schedules. However, Google has just made it a lot easier to use public transport in Delhi, as it has recently released the Delhi Public Transport app. This Android app was created by the Google Maps team and is currently in an “experimental” phase. It gathers public transportation data from Maps and other Google services, and it offers valuable information regarding Metro and bus timetables, routes, directions and schedules.
In order to make sure that it would be useful to as many people as possible, Google’s team designed the app to deliver information offline, and they also made sure that it would be quite small, 1MB to be precise. This way, even the owners of older smartphones can install the app and use it without too many issues. Many other cities in Asia are extremely difficult to navigate, but if Delhi’s Public Transport app proves to be a success, there’s a good chance that Google will focus its attention on other parts of the world as well.
