Apple Maps now covers Hungaryʼs mass transit services
iPhone users in Hungary will now be able to use a new feature in Apple Maps, which allows them to get public transportation directions. The new service not only provides directions, but also departure times and unexpected changes.
Transit data is not something new for Apple Maps, as it has been available for a while in cities in the United States, Australia, Canada and China. According to macrumors.com, the service has been recently updated to include transit data in Hungary, and is accessible using the Transit tab in iOS 9.
In the Budapest metropolitan area, supported vehicles include the Budapest Metro, BKV buses and trams, and HÉV trains. MÁV-START trains are also supported throughout Hungary for long-distance routes, macrumors.com reports.
Appleʼs service is similar to Google Maps, available for Android systems, but offers more detailed information: it maps station services, lists departure times, and provides alerts about service interruptions and other changes.
