this week Google announced a new feature in the most famous web mapping service throughout the world. Until now, google maps enabled just car routes tracing, but at this moment you will be able to trace walking directions also. For that, you will need just to select the option in the search result box: By Car – Public Transit – Walking.
Notice that there is another option here: Public Transport. Brazilians maybe are now asking what it means? Well, this is another google service called Google Transit, which plans a trip using public transportation. This service calculates route, transit time and cost, and can compare the trip to one using a car. Unfortunately, Google Transit are not available for brazilians, just for americans, canadians and europeans.
Below, is an example of the directions made by google maps using this three options said.
- By Car
- Public Transport
