HERE Transit for Nokia Asha Devices Gets Detailed

One of the features that have long been available for the owners of Nokia Lumia smartphones out there is HERE Transit, which enables users to easily find their way around town, and which has landed on Nokia Asha smartphones as well.

Owners of Nokia Asha 500, Asha 501, Asha 502, or Asha 503 devices interested in taking advantage of the application’s capabilities can now head over to the Nokia Store to grab it for free. With HERE Transit on their mobile phones, users will be able to easily plan their journey around town via public transport, as it provides access to scheduled departure/arrival times from public transport companies. “This schedule-based routing details precisely what time the next bus or train is due and does the same for any of your transfer points you may have along the way,” a post on Nokia Conversations explains. Of course, the timetable might not be available in all regions out there, so users will still be provided with estimated time for their journey.

“For most of us using public transport involves an amount of walking and HERE Transit takes this into account by also including walking times,” the aforementioned blog post explains. “Not only that, but you’ll also be presented with the walking route on screen so you know precisely which direction to go. This is extremely useful if your destination is unfamiliar to you and you require door-to-door navigation.” The application will also help users easily decide which route to take, courtesy of a visual journey options screen, which will inform them on how long each journey option takes, and whether any transit changes have been made.

Users can also learn more on the transport routes around them, courtesy of the Nearby transit feature of the application, which pinpoints their current location while displaying a number of nearby stations and stops. “In the interest of saving you valuable travelling time, there’s the option to save your favourite destinations and journey details. Download HERE Transit today and master the public transport,” said blog post continues. HERE Transit for Nokia Asha is available only for users in Sweden, Israel, Russia, Denmark, Norway, Netherlands, USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Spain, Finland, Hungary and New Zealand now.
