Apple Maps has been updated with comprehensive transit data for Salt Lake City, Utah, enabling iPhone users in the city and certain suburbs to navigate using Utah Transit Authority public transportation, including the TRAX light rail system, FrontRunner commuter train, S-Line streetcar, and buses.

Apple introduced Transit in Maps as part of iOS 9 in select cities around the world, including Baltimore, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Sydney, Toronto, and over 300 cities in China. The feature has its own tab in Apple Maps on iOS 10 when entering directions.

To be accurate, shouldn't keep referring to these as cities as it grossly distorts the coverage of Apple Maps transit coverage. These are large regions covering huge areas with anywhere from dozens to hundreds of cities in each and millions of people in each. It's also good to periodically remember why Apple doesn't simply roll out transit directions to all areas at once, as they could easily do. That's what Google did and they have had lots of criticism about the accuracy of their transit. Apple is taking a different path and customizing transit for each region. This article lays the Apple approach out very well.

Meanwhile the Mac languishes almost forgotten...
Better reassign those cartographers to working on the Mac, then. I bet if they brought in their cafeteria staff to work on it, they could release new Macs even faster.
