Belo Horizonte residents have been seeing ships in the past few days when trying to plot public transport routes on Google Maps. I am not referring to the devastating rains in the capital, but to the interruption of the service without any communication from Google.
As Ricardo Fraga found out with Google Brazil, a “technical problem of communication between Google Maps databases” made public transport coverage unavailable on the service in BH.
The company is already working to restore the feature.
Update 11/01: As promised, Google has already restored public transport routes on Google Maps in Belo Horizonte.
