First announced in July, and set to arrive alongside Apple Pay as part of iOS 10.1, Japan’s version of Transit integrates public transportation timetables and first-party indoor mapping data directly into Apple Maps. Support appears to be rolling out in urban centers nationwide, though Apple’s official coverage area is as yet unannounced, reports local blog Ata Distance.

Apple Maps’ transit directions are expected to be a popular feature in the crowded metropolitan areas of Japan, such as Tokyo. The app grabs information from a number of third-party services, and offers the latest departure and arrival times, line hopping instructions, and more. The app also offers indoor maps for large railway stations, and subway stops. Apple is reported to have been collecting the indoor mapping data since August.

In addition to the new transit capabilities, Apple will also be rolling out Apple Pay in Japan later this month, which will allow iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and Apple Watch Series 2 users to pay for their tickets via FeliCa Type-F NFC contactless technology. Apple Pay will support Suica transit cards from JR East and tap-to-pay systems from Docomo and QUICPay.

Apple is expected to release iOS 10.1 to the public on October 25.
