“We are delighted to welcome Croatian Railways Passenger Services to the Google Maps Transit service,” said the director of Google for the Adriatic region Joško Mrndže. “Google Maps seeks to help users in exploring the world around them. In order to help people move faster and easier in the local environment, we would like to provide them not just with geographic map information, but also with public transportation information.”

Google Maps provides travel information from nearly 7,000 carriers with more than 3.8 million stations and in 20,000 cities in 78 countries. In ​​Zagreb, the public transport information is also available.

“The presence of Croatian Railways on Google Maps provides for better visibility and reach to potential passengers who are users of this platform and who did not necessarily consider the possibility of traveling by train for their planned trip. Additionally, Google Maps Transit service offers additional ability to update with real-time information, which is particularly important to inform passengers in the event of incidents which can cause delays, which we plan to implement as soon as possible,” said Marko Knežević, head of the Infrastructure Services Department at Croatian Railways Passenger Services.

Google Maps is used by more than a billion users, with more than half of them using mobile devices. Google Maps Transit service is available through the Google Maps app for Android and iOS systems.
