As noted by IT professional and writer Tom Bridge on Twitter, public transit information for Los Angeles has started to go live in Apple Maps on both iOS and El Capitan. The rollout adds another major city to a feature that launched as part of iOS 9.

Transit information may still be rolling out to users. Support will include train, light rail and bus services in addition to transit directions. In October, Apple added transit directions for both Sydney and Boston. Apple has not yet added Los Angeles to the transit section of its iOS 9 feature page.

This is happening slower than I had hoped. In a city like Tokyo where very few people drive anywhere and almost the entire (huge) population rely on public transport, Apple maps is really limited and we must rely on google maps of the random spattering of terribly designed Japanese apps.

I think they should've started with the basics and after that added the stations exits and so on.
I get where you're coming from, but disagree. If they'd started with the basics, there'd be little reason to pick Apple Maps over Google Maps, unless you were a fanboy.

With Apple providing unique features not available on Google Maps, there's a compelling reason to use Apple Maps, if you're in an area they support.

This approach is the right approach. It's the same one Facebook too. You start off offering a service to a small group of people, but you make the service perfect for them. Only gradually do you expand so that more people can utilize your service.

I want Apple to add in private airlines and busses. Maybe ferries, too.

Yes, this is really slow. Just 2 European cities so far. I suspect you could travel all of the routes on these networks faster than Apple is mapping them. Which begs the question, is this mapping project just one guy with a book of timetables and a GPS tracker?
