Citymapper is a city-wide route-planning app which provides a comprehensive list of options for your route, taking you from A to B using your mobile connection to navigate through to your destination.
The app homepage displays a small map of your location including an inset tube map. From your current location you can view travel options within 5 minutes walk. If you select to walk or cycle, Citymapper will tell you how many calories you will burn and the equivalent in food. e.g. half a chocolate bar or one bacon butty.
For travelers navigating a route through London, the app includes routing via the London Underground other options including, buses, cycling (if using a ‘Boris Bike’ it provides docking stations and the amount of bikes and spaces free to save you hassle), walking, rail, ferry, train and cab options, which include uber and waiting time and approximate costs.
Using the ‘Get Me Home’ or ‘Get me to Work’ options you can set locations for a rapid search of your fastest route to home or work. By using the ‘Get Me Somewhere’ option you can insert a new address for the intended location; ideal if you are planning ahead.
Citymapper will add a fun twist to what is usually a dull commute. You will be presented with options for traveling using a jetpack, teleport or catapult, if you fancy trying a new way of getting to work. It also tries to predict the future by informing you how long your journey would take once the new cross-rail gets implemented.
What's New in Version 6.20
Today's update brings you better bus travel times with TRAFFIC.
Buses are great, but sometimes you feel like you're taking a gamble, not knowing whether you're going to get stuck in traffic.
Gobot to the rescue.
Gobot's already watching every bus in the city to give you live times, so it knows how long it's taking buses to get through each stretch of road. Gobot sees, Gobot remembers, Gobot passes the savings on to you.
Starting in London, NYC, and Moscow (with more cities to come), whenever you plan a bus trip, you'll get even more accurate travel times, based on our latest information. You'll also see any slower areas highlighted on the map of your trip, so you'll know when you'll be feeling that finger tapping, looking out the window, come ON already impatience.
We also made a bunch of small improvements around the app, because we're never satisfied. If you think you've found them all, get in touch, you should come work with us!
Comprehensive routeplanning application, which will enable you to succesfully get from A to B with minimum fuss.
