Spotted by IT professional Tom Bridge, the Apple Maps update lets iOS and OS X device-toting Angelenos plot out trips with public transportation options, check for delays at nearby metro stations and more. Apple has yet to announce the addition on its Feature Availability or mapping service acknowledgments webpages.

Transit data first became available in Apple Maps alongside the iOS 9 update. The feature offers routing, departure, and other important information for a city’s public transportation network. The feature offers transit information about buses, trains, ferries, subways, and more.

Apple Maps also includes a virtual “top-down” view of underground subway and train stations, realistic road signs, and more, in order to better inform public transit riders.

  • Baltimore, MD
  • Berlin, Germany
  • Boston, MA
  • Chicago, IL
  • China
  • London, England
  • Mexico City, Mexico
