Apple Maps: Transit information reaches Orlando and many other U.S. cities

And here we go for another round of updates Apple Maps.


Orlando (Florida)

In the most Brazilian city in the USA, Apple has now implemented public transport data.

Planning using public transport will show the bus routes that must be taken by the user, the schedules for each stage of the trip and, when necessary, the walks that must be taken to complete the route.

Surveys will also warn you of any changes to real-time bus services, including temporary re-routing, which is taken into account when Apple Maps offers navigation instructions.

The data is provided by the Central Florida Regional Transit Authority.


Residents of Little Rock and other cities in the state now also have access to local information on buses and trams, including routes, locations and service notices all properly integrated with local services like Rock Region Metro (in Little Rock) or Jet (in Jonesboro) .

Such services complement the existing support for regional Amtrak lines.

West Virginia

Another state that also received public transport information was West Virginia.

The news reaches some municipalities in the region, such as Charleston, Fairmont and Morgantown, integrating bus data from the Kanawha Valley Regional Transportation Authority, TriRiver Transit, Fairmont-Marion County Transit Authority, Mountain Line Transit, Buckwheat Express and Morgantown Personal Rapid Transit (tram system that connects three campuses University of West Virginia).

As always, navigation options include arrival and departure times, route creation tools and local service notices.

Albuquerque (New Mexico)

Residents and visitors of the most populous city in New Mexico also have access to information provided by ABQ RIDE (a local transit agency that provides transport services on more than 40 routes).

In addition to Albuquerque's bus data, Maps is now integrated with the New Mexico Rail Runner Express rail service, operated by the Rio Metro Regional Transit District.

The train runs from Belen to Santa F, with stops in Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, Los Lunas and other cities.

The page that highlights these iOS features, however, has not yet been updated to include these new locations.
