Taiwan gets Google's live transit updates

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Catching the bus just got a bit easier.

Google Transit, a real-time bus and railway tracking feature in the Google Maps app, officially launched in Taiwan on Tuesday.

Now instead of just seeing bus and metro choices in the Maps app, you can see the bus's estimated arrival as reported by the transit operator in real time.

Google said the transport information service would provide commuters with nationwide railway data feeds.

In the initial roll-out, the feature will be available for use in five major cities: Taipei, New Taipei City, Taoyuan, Taichung and Kaohsiung.
