Google Search Now Shows You When Local Businesses Are Busiest | TechCrunch

tbd if/when Google will suggest alternatives for busy places, a la Waze driving routes

"After performing a search for a business on Google, then clicking the title to see details like its address, phone number and open hours, for example, Google will also now show you “popular times” for the business in question. This data, meant to highlight when the business is at its busiest, is accompanied by a bar chart that you can scroll through day by day.

The company explains that this sort of information can be especially useful for those who are trying to avoid long lines – like when you’re heading out to grab a coffee, doing some grocery shopping, or wanting to hit the gym. The idea is that you can better plan your time by avoiding businesses during their “rush hours” whenever possible."
