TMBAPP (Metro Bus Barcelona)
by: webmaster TMB • 2.7K
TMB Virtual is the official app of Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB), the company that manages the public transport in the city and we must say that we are really impressed with the job developed here.
Through your mobile, you will be able to plan any route by public transport (metro, tram or bus) and know the waiting times in between trains or buses. Also, if you are always complaining about not knowing where the bus and tram stops or metro stations are, don't worry because you get detailed location with the exact distance you have to walk to get to them.
As usual in these kind of apps, TMB Virtual provides real-time and on-location maps via GPS and if you hold your device horizontally the arrows will lead you to the selected spot. You can also download the full metro map in PDF format and get update and last-minute info on bus network incidences. The interface is quite usable and the design, clean and simple, even in when you active the Augmented Reality option which is of them gems hidden in the app.
Tmb Virtual is one of the finest examples of what a public transport app of a great city should be and we accolade TMB for the effort. Targeted to clueless residents and tourists, the app is avaliable in Spanish, English and Catalan (the other language spoken the area).
