Google brings live traffic feature on Google Maps to 130 new cities in the U.S.
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.
