Google has finally add UK rail services to its online mapping application, Google Maps. Those planning journeys or routes with Google Maps can now plan their trip around the train timetables.
The addition of rail information to Google Maps UK is thanks to a new partnership between Google and thetrainline.com. What’s more, travellers will also be able to click through to thetrainline.com to search and book tickets.
To try it out for yourself, load up Google Maps and then click ‘Get Directions.’ Once you’ve filled in your points of departure and arrival, hit the little picture of the train.
