Apple Maps has added data for six Canadian cities located in Ontario, Québec and Alberta.
The following cities now feature transit data when brought up in Apple Maps:
- Gatineau transit data provided by STO (Québec)
- Grand Prairie Transit data provided by the City of Grand Prairie (Alberta)
- Lévis Transit data provided by Société de Transport de Lévis (Québec)
- Sherbrooke transit data provided by STS (Québec)
- St. Albert Transit data provided by the City of St. Albert (Alberta)
- Sudbury Transit data provided by Greater Sudbury Transit (Ontario)
It’s important to note that Apple Maps’ “Feature Availability” page — which lists which cities are supported by the service — hasn’t yet been updated to reflect the eight new Canadian locations.
Back in August, Apple also updated Maps to include support for Ottawa’s OC Transpo and Québec City’s RTC. The service has already been available in Montreal, Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver and Victoria.
Apple Maps has been working to catch up to competitor Google Maps for some time now. Apple’s service originally featured a convoluted display and would incorrectly list places, such as mistaking a grocery store from a hospital. Apple later began deploying a series of drones to try to improve its mapping data.
