    Hey Guys and Gals. I am trying to figure out if it is possible to set up Here transit to ignore certain modes of transportation.

    For example, I live in NYC and dislike using the buses. I just want to get the subway trip information and some transit apps allow for that option. Here always insists on me using the bus and with that ends up giving me directions that far more complicated and in the end useless to me.

    I really love the way the app works otherwise and it would be so frustrating to have to default to lesser apps in order to get my transit needs fulfilled.

    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    I do not believe there is an option to ignore certain modes of transportation, but it should offer multiple options. How to use HERE Transit on Windows Phone 8 – Nokia Conversations : the official Nokia blog

    So overall I unfortunately have to say that HERE doesn't really offer the best functionality for me. I just haven't been able to make it work reliably in NYC. As an alternative to all of you in NYC I would highly recommend Mango Transit. It is not a s beautiful and it does not have all the functionality of HERE but it has pretty much the best directions. Along with the functionality to pick date and time and the usual settings it offers multiple routed to choose from. In the end the directions are what it's all about.

    All is well with the world again. Since they updated the Here Transit app to be able to make choice of transport it has definitely taken over as my go to transit app. Now I can get rid of those pesky busses and find my was to where I need to be with perfection.
