Google has announced that the Android version of its Maps app now shows real-time transit information and recommends possible routes based on it.

“Google Maps is making it easier to track your transportation so you can finish that last sip of coffee without worrying you’re missing your ride. Starting today in Google Maps, relevant journeys are handily arranged and summarized in the app—so it’s easy to know at a glance how long you’ll be waiting and what your other options are if you just miss that bus,” Google wrote in a blog post.

The real-time transit information will be initially available in U.K., Netherlands, Budapest, Chicago, San Francisco, and Seattle.
