Apple Maps Transit Directions Rolling Out in Alaska, Wyoming and Idaho

Apple recently updated its Maps app to add transit directions and data for areas in Alaska, Wyoming, and Idaho.

Apple Maps users in select cities in these states can now select public transportation routes when getting directions between two locations. In Alaska, for example, there are bus routes and other transit options in cities that include Anchorage, Juneau, and Fairbanks.


In Wyoming, transit options are available in areas that include Cheyenne and Jackson, and in Idaho, transit data is available in Victor.

Transit information appears to still be rolling out in these three states and could expand to additional cities over the course of the next few weeks.

Apple has not yet added Wyoming, Alaska, and Idaho to the website where it lists locations where transit directions are available, but it should be added in the near future.

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 three 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 11 Feature Availability website.
