HERE Transit adds support for 46 UK cities

Published by at

Following from the rebranding of Nokia's mapping apps to the HERE brand, HERE Transit (formerly Nokia Transit) has been updated to support 46 UK cities. This marks a great improvement for UK users as previous versions had only included support for the London public transport system. Regions covered by the update are: East-Anglia, East-Midlands, London, North-East, North-West, Scotland, South-East, South-West, Wales, West-Midlands, Yorkshire. Read on for more details.

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.
