What do you think of real time service alerts in the London Underground? Jade W. 4/20/12 10:28 AM
Hey Google Maps users in London,

Earlier this month, we announced real time service alerts for the London Underground to both maps.google.co.uk and Google Maps for Android. We hope this feature alerts you to disruptions in Underground service right when you need to know.

Been playing around with the new feature? Seen an alert while getting directions? Let us know what you think. We'd love to hear your stories and feedback.

Thanks,

despite not actually being or planning to go to London I consider this a very useful feature.
and would like to make two feature request to this new feature.
1. provide this for all transit supported cities and their directions - not only for London & not only for a "busy summer"

2. I know there are for a few  cities (p.e. Zurch)in Swizzerland real time indications of the actual positions of trains.
Such a feature to provide would be a really very great amendment of the Transit directions.

Go ahead
