"The best way from A to B"

Comprehensive urban travel tool, making cities easier to use

Ever been frustrated by the clumsiness of figuring out how to get across a complicated city using Google Maps? Citymapper is the sleek, efficient solution. It's now available in New York City, Boston, Paris, Berlin, Madrid, Barcelona, Washington DC, and London. Your current location is auto-detected, and you tell it where to pinpoint as "home," "work," plus any favorite places you know you'll keep coming back to. Choose your preferred method of transport - walking, subway/metro, cab, bike, bus, tram, ferry, whatever - and be presented with suggested routes, including info regarding disruptions in a transport line, how many potential calories you'll burn, and any anticipated inclement weather conditions. The design is just gorgeous and eminently usable. Try it once and you'll never be able to go back to another maps app ever again.

    It has a great UI, but... The Bus Checker app shows a more complete list of live times for MTA buses. Some times are missing in the Citymapper app. Also, live times for MTA Subways seem to be missing. More times are shown in the Subway Time [beta] app that are not shown in Citymapper.

    This is an amazing app. Very useful, easy to use, uncluttered. Makes travelling around London as simple as sitting down doing nothing! Highly recommended.

    This app made the complicated new York city transit system easy to understand. Perfect for tourists. Save money on taxis and experience the city like locals do.
