These new global features cater to those who are not traveling by car, as well as leverage the rich biking and walking path data captured by the community.” Available on open.mapquest.com in six domestic markets, the transit option provides an additional routing solution to urbanites in the metro areas of New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Boston, Philadelphia and San Francisco, reaching roughly 90 percent of the nation’s rail ridership*.
