Apple Maps today rolls out transit options for Paris. The new feature allows iPhone users in the city and the greater Île-de-France region to navigate the streets using subway, commuter trains and buses.
Many public transportation services which are operated by the RATP Group are supported, including the Mestro subway system, RER commuter trains and buses. If you are in the suburbs, you can also use transilien trains or select other services.
Google Maps has provided support for transit data in Paris and many other cities for years. However, now, Apple supports public transportation more comprehensively. On the map, all entrances to the station are correctly identified, and departure times are listed clearly, so you can find them easily.
At launch, there were 12 cities including to Baltimore, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Sydney, Toronto and 300 cities in China. Apple has been working on expanding support for public transportation to other cities around the world for years
Many newer cities include Atlanta, Columbus, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Honolulu, Houston, Kansas City, Manchester, Melbourne, Miami, Minneapolis–Saint Paul, Montréal, New Orleans, Portland, Pittsburgh, Prague, Rio de Janeiro, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, San Diego, Seattle, and Vancouver, B.C
As station outlines in the city have seen a significant increase in recent months, Apple Maps transit support in Paris is expected to make navigating the city much easier. Transit directions will soon be available in many cities including Adelaide, Perth, Las Vegas, Madrid, Phoenix, Rome, Singapore, Taiwan, and the Netherlands. Red station outlines that have been added recently include Albuquerque, Buffalo, Calgary, Edmonton, Orlando, Ottawa, Nashville, Norfolk, St. Louis, and Tucson.
