Apple Maps is still expanding its public transport information worldwide but with more and more locations being added incrementally, there is a growing chance you by now live in the backyard of a city that Maps does relay public transport data to.
Apple has touted the service for its clean integration into Maps and comprehensive breakdown of the local train, tram or ferry schedules, which for most users has very much lived up to the expectations set.
