Nokia Here Transit is no longer a Lumia exclusive, select Asha phones can use it, too
Nokia revealed that Here Transit, a service previously available only on its Lumia Windows Phone handsets, is now compatible with select Asha phones - in a move to bring them closer to what a real smartphone is. The compatible devices are Nokia Asha 500, Asha 501, Asha 502, and Asha 503 (all four introduced last year).

With Here Transit, Nokia Asha users will be able to plan a journey via public transport with ease. The Here Transit app - available to download for free - provides access to scheduled departure / arrival times of buses and trains, as well as on screen walking routes. There is also a visual journey options screen, which can estimate how long journeys may take, and notifies you about transit changes.

Here Transit for Nokia Asha phones is available in the following countries: US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Hungary and Netherlands. Nokia didn’t say if more countries will be added later.
