If you rely on public transit, you might be disappointed Apple Maps no longer provides this information. Apple refers you to third-party alternatives for transit directions now. You could also use the Google Maps web app to get free directions as well.
The developer of CycleMap has released today, TransitMap. This app provides public transit directions to over 400 cities in 40 countries. Here are the features:
TransitMap features :
– Directions from public transit services.
– Support for more than 400 cities in more than 40 countries.
– Search feature to find easily the place you are looking for.
– Transit between transportation services (Bus, train, subway, …).
– Transit between cities (Where available).
– Directions displayed in text format and on the map.
– Integration in the iOS Maps application.
