Public commuters in Lagos, Nigeria can now access information to help them find their most efficient route, including info like bus stop busyness, and current expected fare levels for Danfo, thanks to the new Traffic tab that has been introduced in Google Maps.
Until now, Google Maps users have only been able to access information for other forms of transportation including cars, 2-wheelers, BRT and ride hailing.
The Traffic tab includes a new directions experience, which features suggested routes which may combine walking, taking a Keke or okada, Danfo or BRT. Information about the estimated fare range, expected travel time and pictures of the stops along the route are now available to aid travellers on their trips around Lagos. Clicking on the pictures will allow users to get a 360 degree view on StreetView to help them better understand their location.
This new feature is available now to Android phone users in Lagos via an ap update. iOS users will get the new Traffic tab at a later time.
