New coverage from HERE Transit – taking you further
By Ian Delaney Wed, Feb 19 2014
HERE Transit is the fastest way to get from A to B using public transport and on foot. Enter your destination or pin locations (such as your house) to your Start screen and the app will work out how to get there quickest using buses, trains, subways and more. If you aren’t using HERE Transit just yet, you can download it from the Windows Phone Store.
But the team behind the product aren’t ones to sit on their laurels, and they recently got in touch to share some of the expansions to the service recently achieved.
It was a long list.
The total coverage now exceeds 800 cities in 53 countries.
HERE Transit improved its coverage and functionality in Taiwan, Singapore, Mexico City, Israel, Sweden, Rio de Janeiro, Kansas City, and Albuquerque. It also introduced fresh data sources for Beijing and Shanghai.
If you live in or travel to the German cities of Cologne, Bonn, Bergisch Gladbach, Leverkusen, Solingen, Remscheid and Wupperal, you can now use HERE Transit to plan your journeys or check schedules of buses, trains and trams.
More recently, HERE Transit added full country-wide timetable routing in Ireland. And timetable support has been added to the service in Rome, Milan, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Bordeaux, Paris and it will be gradually rolled out in Buenos Aires too.
The level of functionality that’s offered by the service varies from place to place, often depending on whether transport providers are able to offer complete, online access to service information. That varies enormously from country to country and city to city, as you can imagine – and is all fitted together by local sourcing and testing champions across the world.
The world’s a big place, but more of it gets hooked into the HERE Transit network every day. Where do you use HERE Transit? And what is the next area HERE Transit should be available in?
