Apple recently brought Yellow Pages-powered business listings to their ever-growing Apple Maps to customers in Canada. However, the company also added new transit data directions for Boston and multiple Amtrak routes in the Northeastern parts of the U.S.
In addition, Amtrak route runs all the way from Chicago to New York. Looking further, publication site Beta Boston highlighted some interesting stuff about Apple’s expansion to their Maps service. The company will support other routes with transit such as Northeast Regional, Acela Express, Lake Shore Limited, Keystone, Pennsylvanian and Maple Leaf.
According to MacRumors, the publication site noted that…
“Amtrak routes in the South, West, Midwest, and Northwest are not currently available in Apple Maps, but the information will likely be implemented as Apple expands transit information to additional areas across the United States.”
Boston, which was one of the originals included in Apple Maps transit launch but later removed, has finally been added to Apple’s information stack for Maps transit location and directions. In addition, Transit directions are currently available in Apple Maps for OS X El Capitan, iOS 9 and watchOS 2 in the U.S., and in 300 cities in China.
Looking over to Apple’s iOS Features Availability webpage, transit data for Sydney, Australia will be coming later this month to Apple Maps. We will let you know when more places and locations are added to Apple Maps, when more information surfaces.
