As we’re playing around with iOS 6, we are enjoying the new look of the Maps app, sans Google. There’s one important feature that seems to be missing though: transit directions.
While this is the first beta version of iOS 6, when you try to pull up public transportation directions, you’re shown a screen that says “Routing Apps” and then “From the App Store” underneath. Nothing shows up though. Yes, the button is still there, but no dice.
F**k it, we'll do it live!

For those in major metropolitan areas, this could mean trouble. I personally rely on Maps for Caltrain times when I’m heading into the city of San Francisco, so I hope that these directions find their way back in. It truly was a clutch feature, which included a series of times of departures, as well as the ability to choose when you need to be somewhere.
The other features are pretty awesome though, including baked-in turn-by-turn directions.
