    As many of you know, iOS 9 has some new "transit" features, but I can't find much documentation on it. My employer provides bus services and while we currently publish Google Transit (GTFS) data, it'd be beneficial to get the data into Apple Maps too. Has anyone seen any information on how to do this?

    I know it's only day 1, but things move glacially slowly around here so I'm trying to get started as early as possible :)

    Exactly, and it'll never be supported if we can't find any way to give them our data.

    We're about to overhaul our system and it'll be great if the new one can export to whatever format Apple needs. But we need documentation before we can do that...

    ur employer or whoever in the company manages transit data can try contacting apple (however that would be done in a way they'd listen)

    Aaand I completely forgot about this until just now. Has anyone else found any documentation on how to submit data to Apple?
