Singapore has put its land transport options on Google Maps as part of what the country claims is the world’s first comprehensive range of land travel planning tools.

The service allows commuters to use the mapping, directions and route planning tools on Google Maps to choose the quickest and most convenient route to reach a particular destination.

The new service is a collaboration between the country’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) and Google.

LTA has provided key transit and traffic information such as live traffic feeds and public bus/MRT routes and schedules and Google worked with Singaporean firm Quantum Inventions to integrate the data.

The country has a daily public transport ridership of six million including travel by buses, taxi and trains.
