Sheffield and Manchester - only bus routes are shown, not tram or metro routes
While HERE Transit has excellent support for bus and tube routes in London, metro train and tram networks, e.g. Manchester or Sheffield, do not appear to be included in the database of routes.
It should be noted that the latest version of Google Maps also uses bus routes rather than tram and metro train routes. However, anecdotal tests suggest that HERE Transit has a better knowledge of bus routes than Google Maps. For example, bus routes in my home town of Kingston Upon Hull are much more detailed in HERE Transit than by Google Maps.
