What do I need to create a rapid transit route in MAPS.ME?
Rapid transit routes are available starting from MAPS.ME version 8.x. You can check it if you open the app settings → About MAPS.ME. New version is available in Google Play and App Store. If you have 8.x version or newer, please make sure that you have updated downloaded maps. Now, you can create a route using rapid transit.
Which cities have rapid transit routes in MAPS.ME?
For the time being rapid transit routes are available in 105 cities. You can check the link for a list of supported cities.
I can't see my city in the list of supported cities :(
It means that there is not enough data like subway stations or lines in OpenStreetMap.org yet. You can check the website to see which data is missing. New cities may appear if more users contribute and add missing data or adjust it in accordance with the OSM guidelines.
Well, it's too complicated for me, I'm not an OSM editor...
You may feel frustration, but don't worry. You can help in other way, for example, you can leave a note about missing or incorrect data for OSM contributors. The more people will participate in the process, the more likely your city will appear in the future.
I always get "Unable to locate route" error while creating rapid transit routes
Please make sure that you have updated the app and downloaded maps. In addition, please check the list of supported cities.
The error may also appear when start or end points are too far from the nearest station. In the case, please adjust your start point or destination closer to a station.
I can't see "Start" button for rapid transit routes
Navigation mode (directions) for rapid transit routes is in our plans for the future.
Can you add list of stations/directions and routes for train/tram/bus?
We only added rapid transit routes and continue to improve public transport features, so it may be possible with time.
