There’s a widespread love/hate relationship with Los Angeles, but at least now you can pull up its transportation data in Apple Maps.
Eagle-eyed IT professional Tom Bridge noticed that Apple has plugged LA’s transportation data into the its Maps app, including rail line schedules, dynamic advisories and integration with directions.
The updated data lets you plot out trips with public transportation options, check for delays at nearby metro stations and more. Apple has yet to announce the addition on its Feature Availability or mapping service acknowledgments webpages.
According to the informational pop-up window provided for specific rail stations, Apple is acquiring at least some of its transit data from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the Southern California Regional Rail Authority.
Apple most recently activated transit data for Boston and Sydney in October.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available and if you notice Apple Maps just started displaying the transit data for your town, please let us know in the comments.
