Find a route
Ask Siri. Say something like: “Give me directions home” or “Transit directions to my dad’s work.” Learn how to ask Siri.
Without asking Siri, you can also find a route by doing the following:
Tap the location you want directions to (for example, a landmark on a map, a spot that you marked with a pin, or a search result), then tap Directions.
Maps shows directions from your current location. If multiple routes appear, tap the one you prefer.
To see detailed directions for the route, tap Go. (See Get turn-by-turn directions in Maps on iPhone.) Or, to change the route, do any of the following:
See a driving, walking, or transit route: Tap Drive, Walk, or Transit.
In select cities, Maps provides public transportation information, which includes walking directions to a bus stop or train station. If transit route information is unavailable, tap View Routing Apps to use an app for other modes of transportation.
Reverse the starting point and destination: Tap My Location (near the top of the route card), then tap .
Choose a different starting point or destination: Tap My Location, tap either the From or To field, then enter a different location.
Avoid tolls or highways: With a driving route showing, swipe up on the route card, scroll to the bottom of the list, tap Driving Options, then tap Tolls or Highways.
Choose a transit time or date: With a transit route showing, tap Leaving Soon (near the top of the route card) to select a time or date for departure or arrival. To choose which transit vehicles to consider, swipe to the bottom of the route card, then tap Transit Options.
