Daniel explained that Google Maps for Android or desktop, you will now see whether "any planned service changes are expected to affect that station at the time." "In addition, the relevant alerts will be included in the step-by-step transit directions pointing you wherever you’re going," he added.

Google has a more detailed explanation on the Google blog.
