    Does anyone know if any of the transit available cities in Apple Maps use live bus/train data? I have been spot checking bus times in Chicago and to me it seems to use the schedules versus actual arrival times. Just curious as just scheduled times makes this transit feature unreliable in my use case. Thanks.

    It's just schedules in Boston too; its especially not very valuable for buses. Boston's transit system does have an API for live tracking data and there are a lot of 3rd party apps that do offer that information.

    What? Are you kidding me? They're rolling out 3 cities a year and it's not even offering live data? How useless is that? In Belgium (Yes I know, Apple will introduce Transit over here in 2034) public transit is either on strike or delayed, so without live data, the feature is useless.
