How do I fix route Google maps wants me to take when walking?
1
I have tried on two Android phones (9 & 11) and my PC to get walking directions from my place to the bus stop. For some reason maps thinks I need to walk an hour and 49 min to walk what take 30-45 min. The funny thing is when I select driving, it takes me the same exact route I can walk. This has been going on for a couple of months now. It was also not an issue two to three years ago. 

Also, who do I talk to to get my transit company to be added to maps? It's frustrating to have to bounce between two to three sites to plan a trip.

Thanks.

Hi, Quiet One
 
Welcome to Google Maps Community Support Forum & thanks for your query.
 
Can you share the screenshots of the walking & driving routes?
That will help in suggesting some solution.
 
However, for the second requirement, can you request the transit company to share data with Google?
That happens through the Content Partners programme explained in the link below.
