Desktop users of Google Maps will also be able to search National Express and Traveline data along with data on other local and national operators. Those operators include Centro and Merseyside. Data in the updated apps include info on almost 17,000 routes and 34,000 stopping points, ferry points, and stations.

 

Users can get data on routes, departures, and interchanges and how far the distance between each station is. Google plans to eventually add data for Northern Ireland. The recent updates mark one of the biggest integrations of public data Google has ever conducted.
