Nokia has rolled out an update for its HERE Transit (or Transport) app, available on Lumia Windows Phones. Pushing up the build number, the company has added a number of minor improvements, including the ability to show nearby stations / stops on the map as well as accessing favourites from HERE Maps and Drive.

Here's the full changelog of what's new in version 3.5.1017:

  • View nearby stations and stops on the map
  • Switch easily from HERE Maps to HERE Transit Planner within the Journey
  • Access favourites from HERE Maps and Drive

You can download HERE Transit from the Nokia Collection of apps on the Windows Phone Store.

Update: The version of HERE Transit for all Windows Phones (other than Lumia hardware) has also been updated (right-hand QR Code).

Nokia HERE Transit for Windows Phone updated with some minor improvements

does this thing have Vancouver yet? i can't believe vancouver wasn't on it when I last checked (in december 2012)

There are so many cities, and so little resources :) Patience is a virtue... I'm sure they are doing their best to add as many cities as possible.

I imagine some of it might do with what the transit infrastructure of the city offers for them to link in to either. Here I can get a number of surrounding cities, but my own is missing (toronto area).

it does have vancouver, but only has skytrains on the map, but doesn't have times for the trains! just where the stops are and what trains go there. it's pretty useless if it doesn't have buses, and bus/train times!! next train/bus time is kind of mandatory for a transit app
 

I thought that since Nokia released it's HERE Transit, Maps and Drive to all WP8 devices that when an update would come out, it would be available to all phones at the same time....which isn't the case right now. I can't download it on my 8X.

A bit off topic, but The L800 is the best looking device ever!! Sad that it didn't get WP8

Finally, we can access the fovourite from the other Here Apps. Honostly all the favourites for location should be centralized throughout the Here apps. Also, I am liking the show location of nearby stops on map.
For me, these are actually great updates and they are major feature enhacments.

There are a LOT of issues on the phone with decentralized maps.  Depending if I go through Search, Local Scout, something pinned or HERE Maps I get a different experience and sets of reviews for businesses.  No matter what I should get the same information on my phone.

I love the app. Only thing I really want them to add is the ability to toggle off certain modes of transportation.

I find the biggest flaw of this app is the inability to clearly differenciate between the different types of transport i should look for is actually a Train? a Metro? an Underground line? All show the same goddamn train icon, no textual description what it represents actually. Until this isnt shown additionally with at least some textual description, i consider this as a crappy app.
