Last month, we silently improved our public transport directions by taking into account the approximate waiting time for buses. This helped us to better estimate the total journey time, allowing us to provide better route choices to our users.
Because these changes were made under the hood, some of you may have been perplexed by the increased journey time for your usual routes. To address this confusion, we are introducing a small change in the way we are displaying our public transport directions.
Deconstructing your bus journey
Even though the waiting time is currently fixed at 10 min for feeder services and 15 min for all other services, you can already get a sense of the amount of time spent waiting in your daily commute.
