A month ago, the Russians faced another problem: Google maps stopped showing which public transport can be used to get from one point to another in the city. When you try to navigate, the message “Error” appears. The schedule of buses, trams and trolleybuses is not shown.
Experts point out that the maps (Google Maps) have not been updated since the summer of 2022, that is, they may contain outdated information that misleads users.
“The company bought data on the operation of public transport in Russia from various providers. Now, due to bankruptcy, he cannot pay for this information. So the routes are not being built,” explained Eldar Murtazin, lead analyst at Mobile Research Group. .
