After the previous software update before sw 2.2.1.18 (Numonjoki) the public transport in 'HERE WeGo' application.

Here are no buses or trains found anymore. This stopped after software update in June. This is likely a bug in the internet access of the android support.

When using an Android phone with 'HERE WeGo' application public transport is shown. Tested in Germany.

Can confirm this. Also in Germany.

It "works for me" (same SfOS version, tested for several german cities). But it depends on the zoom level and you have to select the "Nahverkehr" tiles.

I can't recall that HERE has ever shown buses (even Google Maps only shows trains - so I've always used the public transport tiles from OpenStreetmap in Maep).

Not sure what you are talking about. The HERE WeGo app has vector graphics and no tiles.

I referred to the layers/tiles icon in the lower right corner in HERE.

And no, they don't use vector graphics but bitmap tiles: I observed that (with only some map content cached), public transport can be visible from a high level perspective, and, as you zoom in, the public transport stuff can disappear (as the content is not cached - and as there is no internet connection, it can't download the missing parts). After zooming in a bit more, public transport is visible again (present in the cache again).

If they would have used vector data, they could display the colorful public transport lines on all zoom levels, just rescaling the more detailed data for a high-level perspective.

The labels (line numbers, ...) seem to be independent and vector-graphics-like from the map background, though.

Unfortunately, public transport doesn't work for me any more with Google Maps, too. Anybody can confirm this?

I had problems fetching layers on Google Map with another different app (a carsharing app, which uses Google Maps to display this layer).

restarting the android layer fixed this.
