What's New

Version 6.26.2

In this update we improve the ACCOUNT feature.

You can now set up a CITYMAPPER ACCOUNT using email, Facebook, or Google (and you should). That way, when you 'accidentally' nuke your phone in the microwave, you'll be able to see all your SAVED STOPS AND TRIPS on your brand new (and totally necessary) iPhoneX.

And if you have several devices because you're hustling multiple jobs, or, heaven forbid, you're flirting with other platforms (shame!), your account will also save ACROSS ALL OF YOUR DEVICES. It might even do other things in the future...stay tuned.

We also made some changes to the homescreen to make it simpler and faster, but we'll let you sleuth those.

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.

Pretty good for London, some flaws


Amazing that this app is free and provides so much info. In the early days of the App Store this kinda thing cost a pretty penny. There's also no advertising of any kind. Ultimately a five star app, with a couple of nitpicks that don't really take away from it.

The variety of transport options is food although the multi modal options (still experimental) are a bit lacking. The foregrounding of Citymapper run transport options (Citymapper smart bus, black bus) is interesting but because they serve a small part of central London, which I'm rarely in, the prominence in the interface is pointless for me.

Whilst the augmented reality is cute for a few minutes, after that it's a big button on the interface that leads to a useless feature. Please give us the option to disable it.

Turn by turn walking directions please?


I use CityMapper on and off and recently acquired an Apple Watch so thought it'd be a good time to try out the CityMapper integration there. I could select my destination on the phone, it'd sync to the app and it was very nice, UI layout and everything. Until it came to the walking part. I look at my watch and it just said "Walk". OK, but my destination is at least 25 minutes away, why no turn by turn directions.

And then I remembered this last time I tried using CityMapper. It seems such a shame since it puts so much emphasis on walking, but it doesn't even tell you how to get there.

It's nearly perfect for my uses, I like to walk as much as I can, but the lack of turn by turn makes me go back to the competition. And no one wants that.
