Good news America! Following Google’s decision to bring live traffic to seven new counties last month, the Mountain View-based Internet search titan is announcing the expansion of the Google Maps feature to more than 130 smaller cities across the U.S. including Kalamazoo (Michigan), Portland (Maine) and Tuscaloosa (Alabama). Additionally, Google is also bringing live traffic to the capitals of Colombia, Costa Rica, and Panama, and improved its coverage in some parts of Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and U.K.
To check out the cities with the live traffic data, you can check it out here. “Whether you’re online on your home computer ensuring no unexpected snarls await your drive to the airport or you’ve been stuck behind a line of cars for a few minutes and can ask your friend in the passenger seat to check whether it’ll clear up just around the bend, we hope these updates save you time and stress when getting to your destination,” Google said in the official announcement.
