Transit directions for Apple Maps have recently expanded to Belgium, Manila in the Philippines, Switzerland, Wyoming, and Iowa, Apple confirmed today in an update to its Feature Availability page for iOS.

In these locations, Apple Maps users can get directions using the transit options available in their states or countries. Apple actually implemented transit directions in these locales over the course of the last few months, but the Feature Availability page is only updated every few weeks.

Transit directions were added to Apple Maps in 2015 for a handful of cities, and since then, Apple has been working to expand the feature to additional areas. Transit information is now live in dozens of cities and countries around the world.

In addition to offering transit directions in new locations, Apple has also expanded its indoor maps availability to additional airports. All of the following airports now support indoor maps:

  • Brisbane Airport (BNE)
  • Central Japan International Airport (NGO)
  • Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG)
  • Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL)
  • Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport (JAN)
  • Melbourne Airport (MEL)
  • Tokyo Narita International Airport (NRT)

Indoor maps for malls and airports were introduced in iOS 11, providing full layouts of each mall or airport location with icons for restaurants, elevators, bathrooms, shops, and other notable landmarks. Different floors are clearly marked, making it easy to navigate through unknown areas.

A full list of all of the airports and mall locations where the Apple Maps indoor mapping feature is available can be found on Apple's feature availability website, which also houses a list of all of the locations where transit directions are available.

This should go at a MUCH higher pace! I'm working sometimes with a company called HERE maps, and their database is so vaaaaaaaaastly bigger than what apple is offering, it's really painful to watch.

Working at a higher pace just allows for more mistakes to be made more quickly. "Bigger" doesn't always mean "better."

Dallas Love Field? :eek::D:p
It's tiny - probably took them all of 30 minutes to make all the graphic assets required, write the code, and debug.
Love Field is the airport where Kennedy arrived in Dallas on Air Force One. It is also where LBJ was sworn in as President on board Air Force One after the assassination.

A huge issue is how bad their business data is sometimes. I scroll around Manhattan, not exactly a backwater, and there's tons of stuff missing, businesses labelled in the middle of a block of buildings, stuff like that. For driving directions, Apple Maps works very well in my experience but when I'm doing local mapping I often feel let down.

Not listed on apples website (in English, at least) but I’ve noticed some of these have appeared in my city in China. Not every shopping mall (we have loads, more metro stations have two or more malls attached than the number that have 0) but a decent number of major ones now have indoor maps.

I’m on my way to one now, and was hoping the restaurant I’m looking for was in the general vicinity of its previous point on Maps. Now I know for sure where it is and what floor. Awesome.
