Apple Maps Introduces Transit Data for Sacramento, California

Apple Maps has recently been updated with the introduction of all new Transit information for the city of Sacramento, California, which will let iPhone users in the city navigate using public transportation options like buses, subways, commuter rails, and more.

Transit routing became available within iOS 9 with a limited number of supported cities at launch. Since then, Apple has worked at expanding support for the public transportation feature of its first-party Maps app, now encompassing 20 cities around the world and 30 cities within China.

Including Sacramento, Transit directions can be found in Austin, Sydney, Baltimore, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Toronto, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington, DC. Over the past month alone Apple has released a rapid collection of cities with Transit support, including Montreal, Portland, Seattle, New South Wales, and Rio de Janeiro, ahead of the 2016 Summer Olympics.

(Thanks, Ram!)

Happy to see more cities being frequently added but what about Europe. All we have is London and Berlin. No Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Amsterdam, or Manchester ? Pfft

Can Apple please just buy Citymapper? They are taking ages to improve their Maps app - Citymapper is probably one of the most complete transit apps worldwide at the moment and they are adding cities every few months.

At what point will we reach saturation and this is no longer news worthy? My guess is that at the current rate of deployment, that point is very far off. I really hope Apple figures out how to roll this out faster.

I hope that Apple already knows how to roll this out faster, and that one city a week is phase 2 of a multiphase plan of escalating their process smoothly.

Probably never.

This has to be the slowest, most pathetic rollout of a feature I have ever witnessed.
