Outstanding.

This Google Maps Update Is Going To Change Public Transport Forever Speed - Mark Gordon Productions

If you're known for having a big night and then missing your stop on the trip home, this news could very well change your life.

Google Maps are reportedly rolling out an update that will notify you when your stop is approaching.

Similar to its directions function for driving, Maps will ping you in the app and on the lock screen, so the days of nervously alighting the bus several stops early so you don't miss your stop are over.

It's not clear when this update will be available for everyone, as at this stage only random users have access for testing.

While you wait, apps such as Tripview can give you a pretty good idea of when you'll arrive at your destination.
