The Netherlands debuts as the first country in the world where Google is providing up-to-date public transport information via its Google Maps service.

The Dutch news website reports that it has been possible to request arrival and departure times via Google Maps since 2010 but only now is the information updated to include delays and breakdowns.

Google says all public transport providers in the Netherlands have agreed to join the service, which has nationwide coverage. Current public transport apps 9292ov and OpenOV have also joined the project. Google told the new service has been prompted by the large number of searches for public transport information in the Netherlands.
