“Public transport is a vital part of the infrastructure that makes our cities run efficiently, and can help mitigate congestion, environmental concerns, and increasing energy costs. But until recently, access to that information has been more difficult than it needs to be. This lead us to the fundamental goal of the Google Transit project: make public transit information as easy to find as any other geographic information,” Kiran Bapna, new business development and Manik Gupta, product manager, Google Maps and Local Search, Google India have said.

According to Google India, Google Transit is now available in over 500 cities around the world including in Delhi where Google India partnered with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation in March 2010 to launch Delhi Metro routes on Google Maps and in Bangalore where the company partnered with Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation to launch Bangalore Bus routes.
