Google has updated the transit features of its popular Maps service on Android, making it easier to find public transportation.

 
The jack of all trades company has released an update (version 6.10) to Google Maps for Android, which allows users to select a single type of public transportation to display on the Transit Lines layer, so users looking for a train won't be presented with extraneous information like bus, tram or subway lines.
 
Station pages are getting an upgrade, displaying departure times, lines that serve the station, and distance to other nearby stations.

For those less interested in surviving the public transport gauntlet, Google is also updating other aspects of Google Maps for Android, including highlighting the borders of a region searched for, new tabs in My Places to help find information in one place, and an improved Location History dashboard that will display places users have been on a daily basis.
 
Google also revealed that a whopping one million timetables and schedules have been added to Google Maps, covering 500 cities across the world, including many major capitals.
 
The update can be downloaded from the Google Play store.
