Nokia Public Transport for Symbian (S^3 AND S^1) – the app for getting around via the use of public transportation vehicles is updated to v2.1 on Nokia Beta Labs. This version is also available on Nokia Store  (which they call Ovi Store :/)

Nokia Public Transport helps you navigate cities by public transportation.

This version is also available in Ovi Store. Please leave feedback here.  It’s the best way to get in touch with us!

  • Search for public transport stations/stops, addresses and POIs.
  • Choose from multiple routes and follow the list of directions for buses, trams, underground or trains.
  • Have your favourite routes from your current position in the app main screen.
  • See on the map how to walk to/from your station.
  • Find nearby stations, departure times and even types of transit lines available around your location.
  • View detailed line stops and times before you get off.

 What’s new in 2.1?

  • All the platforms (S^1 and S^3-all firmwares) have now the same feature set – only difference is Transport Nearby on the map (which is only supported on Belle and newer firmwares).
