Nokia Public Transport has matured enough to arrive as an app for Nokia Belle devices, and its next version is already available in the new Nokia Maps Suite in the Beta Labs, if you want to try it out as well.

The app now features extensive coverage of Metro, bus, tram, trolleys and ferry networks in 80 major cities worldwide, including US ones like Austin, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Sacramento. It allows you to schedule your city trip with the public transport, instead of a car. Eliminating the need for paper maps and timetables, it can show you the nearest public transport stations or stops around you, and calculate how to get to the desired destination with the Metro, bus, a combination of them plus some walking, and so on.

What's even better, the Maps team commented at the end that Nokia Public Transport with full functionality is arriving soon to the Windows Phone Lumia devices of the Finns, so hopefully it will hit by the time the Nokia 900 appears on AT&T's shelves, adding to the free offline voice-guided navigation that will be on there. In fact, Nokia already demoed the City Lens and Transport apps on a Nokia Lumia 900 around the CES show last month.

The web version of Nokia Maps also has those public transport routes and can be set for offline navigation from iOS and Android devices, by downloading a precached map of the neighborhood to use for routes.
