Apple Maps Transit Directions Go Live in Vienna, Austria

Apple appears to have updated its Maps coverage to add transit directions in Austria, with a focus on public transportation routes in and around the capital, Vienna.

Apple Maps users in the country can now select transit routes when getting directions between two locations, with U-Bahn and S-Bahn train routes included in the coverage.

iPhone-ticker.de notes that map options for other Austrian cities have also been expanded, although some regions still lack full coverage. Maps has integrated regional trains into its transit directions for Innsbruck, for example, but other modes of public transport in the area are still missing.

Transit directions were first added to ‌‌Apple Maps‌‌ in 2015 with the launch of iOS 9. Maps initially only offered transit information in a handful of cities, but over the course of the last five years, Apple has worked to expand the feature to additional areas.

Transit information is now live in dozens of cities and countries around the world, with a full list available on Apple's iOS and iPadOS Feature Availability website, although it has not yet been updated to include Austria.

(Thanks, Florian!)

Finally! ?

I imagine it's really hard for people from the US to imagine how far behind Apple services in other countries are. Not saying this is always Apples fault btw, I'm well aware there are different regulations at play. At the same time, how long did we already have that feature in Google Maps? It must be years by now.

Google Maps has transit information in literally every place on earth. Sometimes even in places where google maps is blocked (China).

if Apple wants to be a competitor to google, they need to adapt features fast and globally. Not a city every year...

Many people, including myself, just want to pick the app that always works. Apple just doesn’t deliver that

Vienna, AT was (maybe still is? haven't been in a decade now) an amazing city and truly unique.

I have fond memories of my time there which was a few months.
Vienna is really amazing, you should all come visit and we will organize a meetup with the Austrian community from this forum :) And for sure with the new maps feature you will not get lost ?
