Apple Expands Maps Transit Data to Additional Cities in Ohio

Apple is continuing to expand the availability of transit directions in the Maps app, today adding transit support in several cities in Ohio, including Cincinnati, Akron, Dayton, Canton, Athens, and some areas of Cleveland.

Transit directions in these cities come following the introduction of transit information in Columbus, Ohio, which was added in September.

Public transit options in Ohio encompass bus and light rail routes available in each city, including the Cleveland RTA, Cincinnati Bell Connector, Akron Metro, Dayton RTA, Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, the Stark Area Regional Transit Authority, and more.

Apple first added transit directions to Maps in 2015, as part of iOS 9. At launch, transit information was only available in a small handful of cities around the world, but Apple has been working hard to expand the feature to additional locations.

Transit data is now available in more than 30 cities, along with dozens of places in China.

Is Apple building its own database which is causing such a painfully slow roll out? Or is it that they are slowly adding servers? Because if they are buying this data you would think they could buy it a whole lot faster.

Still waiting on Phoenix.

I still believe that they should have kept google maps where all this stuff worked from the get go.

Why?

;)


Because people live in Ohio. As a Columbus resident and a frequent visitor to Cleveland and Cincinnati, I welcome this!

Wow this is great news. At this rate we will have transit data in places like Wellington, New Zealand sometime around 2056.

Isn't it great that Google already has this, so at least we have something we can use in the meantime.
