The following Canadian cities were added:

  • Grand Prairie Transit data provided by the City of Grand Prairie
  • St. Albert Transit data provided by the City of St. Albert
  • Sudbury Transit data provided by Greater Sudbury Transit
  • Gatineau transit data provided by STO
  • Ottawa Transit data provided by OC Transpo
  • Lévis Transit data provided by Société de Transport de Lévis
  • Sherbrooke transit data provided by STS
  • Québec City transit data provided by RTC

A quick test confirmed transit directions in Ottawa–you should see the same for other cities listed.

Earlier this year, Apple Maps expanded transit data to numerous other Canadian cities, including Windsor, Vancouver, Toronto and more. This summer we saw transit expand to Calgary, Edmonton and more.

On Apple’s website under Transit for Maps, only Calgary, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Victoria are listed still as supported Canadian cities, but should see an update soon.

Today’s update acknowledges what users in the listed locations above have recently discovered when it comes to transit directions within Apple Maps.
