Editors’ Choice

Serving urban centres as diverse as London, Lyon, Boston and Tokyo, Citymapper aims to make city travel as stress-free as possible. And, rather brilliantly, it manages it. Plugging in a desired destination (“home” and “work” can be saved, usefully) serves up every imaginable method of getting there, including a nice Uber sync-up. It also displays costs, live departure times, duration and calories. Our favourite feature, however? The option to discover how long it’d take to get where you’re going by jetpack and teleportation. One day, Citymapper. One day.

Brilliant app for London

This is one of my favourite travel apps. I’m a Londoner and I use it all the time. For ages I have been looking for an app where you can see all the transport modes in one app. But no app does that does it? Well Citymapper does! Works great for London Underground and National Rail and is also really handy to check the next tube and bus times. Love the addition of the Line Statuses so I can check for disruptions before I leave home in the morning. Planning capabilities are excellent and I really like how you can view maps of individual rail or bus lines/routes. Haven’t yet used it for any other cities but I’m guessing it’s just as great! I also love the fact that the app stores all the city related maps for you to browse and explore the city. On the whole, to get around a city, all in one app, this is the app you need!

One of the best apps on my phone

Whether it’s the prompts telling me it’s my stop next on an unfamiliar S-Bahn Line, reliable ‘local’ walking routes that shave 5 minutes off travel times with shortcuts, telling me the best Tube carriage to get on in London, public transport timetables or Uber integration, CityMapper has made travel so much easier.

I use it all the time in London, used it for a 1st time visit to Copenhagen (when I had no other map), 2nd visit to Berlin (where the public transit was invaluable) and Paris when I needed to find some rather more obscure locations.

Unlike other mapping apps, it doesn’t seem to drain the battery as it tracks progress. Maps are clear and directions also usually. You can save directions for use offline. Public transport integration is excellent. For example, in Berlin other apps listed incorrect info (telling me there was no direct airport route to where I was staying, when the S9 in fact does the job).

My only two quibbles; it doesn’t cover enough cities and on on occasion it directed me across a park that’s currently a building site. Minor points against a really outstanding app.

Oh. And it’s entirely free. Chuck the paper maps in the recycling and download this instead. It’s all you need.
