Wondering How Late Your ZET Bus Will Be? Google Maps Reveals All

Lauren Simmonds

Do you use Zagreb’s public transport carrier, ZET? Bored of wondering if your bus is ever going to turn up? Thanks to Google Maps, now you’ll be able to follow delays, heightened traffic, and more.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 29th of June, 2019, when you choose the starting location and the destination location within the Google Maps, it will show information on the ways of the fastest possible arrival to your desired destination – when it comes to buses, besides the classic information, whether or not traffic levels are normal or if there are delays is also displayed.

Given the crowds on Zagreb’s roads, especially during the height of rush hour, it’s hard to predict how long it might take to arrive to where you want to get to when using the capital’s ZET trams and buses. Although urban public transport of course has its own timetable, it’s become quite clear not just in Zagreb but all over the world that buses can’t adhere to them during times when there are the biggest crowds, leaving everyone standing rather helplessly at the station simply waiting and hoping the bus they need will come as soon as possible.

As Zimo writes, thanks to Google and the option to track any delays on the roads on Google Maps, now available in 200 cities – including Zagreb, now passengers can track just how delayed ZET buses will be at any given time.

On the Google Maps app for Android and Apple devices, the app will provide information on late ZET buses, as well as a more accurate calculation of the estimated time it will take on the road from your starting location to your final destination, that will be calculated based on live traffic conditions and the route. In addition, places on the road where there is more traffic than usual, causing the buses to be delayed, will also be shown on the app.

In addition to telling you all of this information, alternative routes may also be displayed on the application itself, which may take longer on their own, but with the new data made available on ZET bus delays, travellers will be able to see where the most traffic and delays are located, and have the option to decide on possibly using other routes that would usually take longer.
