Transit Information in Sweden in Apple Maps

Apple Maps Gains Transit Directions in Several Nordic Countries

Apple Maps has another cloud-side update rolling out that brings more transit information to the app and service. The update specifically focuses on several Nordic countries including Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland. The coverage includes trains, trams, and busses in each of the capital cities for the countries. It also includes transit links between countries.

Since this is a cloud-side update, there is nothing you need to do on your iPhone or iPad. The updated content will simply be pushed to your account and you will be able to see it when you navigate to one of the countries and start putting in transit directions. The update is account based so once it arrives on your iPhone, it should be on your iPad too.

Apple Maps has continued to slowly and steadily gain transit information over the past several years. It started in the United States in 2015 but has expanded to many parts of Europe and Asia since that time. While it is arguably still behind Google Maps in overall transit coverage, the gap is closing rapidly. This update, for example, is one of the biggest single updates Apple has ever done to Maps in one shot.

As always, you can check the latest transit information in Maps on the Apple site. These new locations aren’t actually on the list just yet but that should change by the end of the day.
