Google has come up with a new android app, Delhi Public Transport Offline , that will help users in the national capital to move around the city using public transport without the need for an internet connection.

The free app lets you look up bus and metro routes and supports DMRC Metro, DTC buses, Gurgaon Rapid Metro and DIMTS Orange buses.

Apart from searching for directions to your destination, this app will let you to view bus and metro timetables and receive notifications about Delhi transit news and metro delays.

The app is said to be quite similar to Citymapper and Moovit, both of which are yet to offer their services in India. The move is seen as Google's effort to competing with public transit journey-planning apps.

Google has said that Delhi Public Transport Offline is an experimental app, so it's likely still in need of some work.

The app is expected to come in handy for the millions of citizens who commute daily using New Delhi's public transport systems.
