Google announces Traffic Tab to ease gridlocks in Lagos

Poised to help ease pains of commuters in the city, Multinational technology giant, Google has launched a new feature on its map, Traffic Tab, to reduce traffic congestions in Lagos. The  new feature offers users a snapshot of the information about traffic, weather, bus stop busyness, and currently expected fare levels for commercial busses.

 Traffic tab provides bus riders with information to help them find their most efficient route, both in travel time and transport costs.
   Until now, Google Maps users have only been able to access information for other forms of transportation including cars, 2-wheelers, BRT and ride-hailing.
The Traffic tab includes a new directions experience, which features suggested routes that may combine walking, boarding a tricycle popularly known as Keke Maruwa, Bike, Danfo among others.   
   Information about the estimated fare range, expected travel time and pictures of the stops along the route are now available to aid travellers on their trips around Lagos. Clicking on the pictures will allow users to get a 360-degree view on Street-View to help them better understand their location.
    Commenting on the development, Senior Product Manager, Google Maps, Jeff Albertson, said, “what we have built for Lagos is a global first for Google Maps, and a step towards helping people in many other cities where transport can be informally organized as it is in Nigeria,”: “We co-designed this product with people in Lagos. It was an engaging process to start from scratch, bring diverse teams of Googlers to Lagos, interview Lagosians and Local Guides, understand local needs, and then design something that weaves together all the many ways that people here move around.”.
The launch of this new Traffic tab follows the introduction, in July, of a dedicated travel mode in Google Maps to provide directions and navigation for motorcycles in Nigeria. Google also launched navigation guidance in a Nigerian voice for both motorcycle and car driving modes at the same time. Google also recently published more panoramic imagery on Street View, to help make it easier to visually explore places in Nigeria, including imagery of Abuja, Benin City, Enugu and Ibadan – with almost 12 thousand kilometers of roads added.
    “Nigeria is important to us. Beyond providing tools to help Nigerians use Maps, we also want to continue to bring more of Nigeria to the map. It’s a journey that we are happy to be on,” he added.
