Travellers, backpackers and holidaymakers can now use public transport with confidence in more cities and countries around the world, thanks to HERE Maps. As well as highly detailed maps, the app features public transport information for nearly 1,000 cities across 44 countries, meaning explorers can get the inside track on the best route to take

 

With up-to-the-minute information on routes and timetables covering more than 6,000 bus and train routes worldwide, HERE Maps allows adventurers to navigate bus and train journeys in four continents.

Or, in Russia, with public transport information shown in 82 areas, travellers can navigate the Trans-Siberian railway to find enlightenment atUlan Ude – the country’s capital for Buddhism– or visit Perm, the town that inspired Boris Pasternak’s Doctor Zhivago.

Justus Brown, Head of Urban Mobility at HERE said: “Many people are hesitant to use public transport when travelling to new places because sometimes it’s hard to figure it out. We can change that. With HERE Maps we provide information on thousands of public transport journeys around the world so that travellers and holidaymakers can plan their journey on public transport with confidence.”
