Citymapper has been doing for years. One of the best and most reliable apps on Android IMO.
Glad to see Google is stepping up its game though, since this ought to be by default on Android phones it'll be a big plus for Maps user, and without having to use an external app.
Not knowing exactly which bus stop to get down at was the only reason why I did not take buses when I initially moved to Singapore.
But then I found apps like Citymapper and Moovit. If you select a route you're taking they let you know when you are arriving at your bus stop.
Also I don't know if everyone knows about this (took me quite a while to figure out) but the card tapping machines on the buses display the name of the current stop. It changes to the approaching bus stop when you get close to it.
Citymapper - works wonderful for transportation.
It works with Metro, Bus, Cercanías, the Taxi app that you have installed on your phone (Uber, Hailo), Car2Go, BiciMad...
And it has a wonderful interface!
> Grab a map of the subway and keep it handy.
Personally though I can really recommend the "Citymapper" app for your phone for this.
This app features digital versions of the subway map, available to view offline.
But it also gives the option to plan and set a journey and save it offline, so you can even easily access it while underground.
Sounds like an advertisement (And I think in some way I'm just doing that xD) But this app has already helped be a great deal when I was in Tokyo, London and Amsterdam. Really useful if you're planning on travelling with public transport.
Now any 'verbal' advertisement wouldn't be complete if I didn't add a Apple and Android url.
Citymapper was invaluable to me during a recent trip to London.
They cover a limited number of cities, so be sure to check the list.
There's also Transit which is quite good, and has other cities.
For the lazy:
Citymapper is probably the best one that I've seen from a holistic view. Converted a ton of my friends to it as well. It doesn't show the exact position of it, but does real time updates for how many minutes until the bus arrives to your location. Only downside is it doesn't really take detours into account if a bus is rerouted, that's the only reason I still use the Septa app.
Good improvements, but for transit services, it seems like Maps is quite some time out from being comparable to CityMapper. Why do I love CityMapper? Because everything is delayed in my city, and I love being able to prepare around delayed times, instead of scheduled times >_>
>Is Mastercard Debit accepted everywhere ?
Yes, but take 2 different cards, just in case
>Like if I land at Heathrow and want to take a taxi
Use public transport whenever possible faster and cheaper.
Install Citymapper before you come, use it to plan your journey. Google maps also works for directions and public transport.
For the buses and tube use contactless bank card (touch in - touch out) or buy an oyster card at the station and top it up as you need it at the ticket m/c.
If you're in a city supported by Citymapper, it is vastly superior to Google Maps for public transport. I'm in Google's own backyard (SF Bay Area) and there are a ton of transport options completely absent from Maps which Citymapper picks up, as well as a feature telling you if you can save x amount of time for the price of y dollars by splitting the journey into public transport + Uber, if your destination isn't near a transit stop.
There is competition out there, at least on the android side. citymapper and transit app are both pretty nice. No clue if these are available on the app store.
I like CityMapper, which is brilliant, though only covers large cities.
Moovit is pretty good too and seems to work in rural areas. Probably uses the Google Maps data, but gives you proper directions when using public transport. With GMaps, it seems you can only get guidance for car/walking/bike.
Another good app I've used is called Citymapper. I've used Transit as well. While Transit is better at finding actual schedules, Citymapper I find is better at mapping and tracking.
This app is all you need. It's the ultimate city transport app. . Uses very little data, it tells you EVERYTHING. Has a brilliant commute widget that maps out the fastest route to work and home using live information and it's a fun app to use too with 0 ads.
Also on Apple app store too.
Citymapper is the best bet to get a guaranteed good route, especially so in London.
However being Gatwick I would expect, and hope, that being an important route it would be unaffected.
Provides cost estimates and ETA for transit, cabs, Uber, Car2Go, biking and Bixi, you name it. Can track locations and navigate you to them with a click, plus automatic commute tracking for home and work addresses if you enable it and give your hours. Still slick despite all the features, and my phone is garbage. Highly recommend it.
wow that looks ancient. I recommend something more fleshed out like CityMapper. It has real time GPS tracking wherever it's available and it works great in my city. In fact, I use CityMapper for city commutes most of the time and Google Maps when I need to travel somewhere outside city limits.
citymapper can do that and it's also a fantastic city commuting tool. On par or in some cases better even than Google Maps. I use Citymapper when I need to look up directions in a city (that is supported, of course) and for all other directions, I use Google Maps. Only downside is that if you choose to allow notifications on any public transit changes like delays, it will notify you every day and there doesn't seem to be a way to change when or at what intervals you'd rather be notified. So it can feel a bit spammy.
Google Maps is awesome, but City Mapper is quickly becoming a favorite transit app of mine. Alerts you when you're near your stop and also has live GPS public transit tracking.
I actually can know the exact time with a pretty good degree of accuracy thanks to CityMapper
My problem is I never think to use it, and instead am just like "ok, it's time to go"...then I sit there for 10-15 minutes on my phone cursing WMATA under my breath.
That being said, I'd much prefer they make metro more convenient, with more cars, on the weekends. I personally wouldn't even mind paying more.
If you have Android, I can't recommend CityMapper enough. I think it's also on iPhone, but I'm too lazy to check.
The metro and bus times are always accurate. It shows uber pricing (and surge pricing), provides walking directions, and you can save addresses (like home, work, girlfriends place, etc.). It's an amazing app.
I've heard good things about Citymapper and nycTrans, but I don't have personal experience.
for 4 days, get a 7 day unlimited metrocard, think its $31. I almost spent that much in pay per ride after 3 days there. It'll be $2.50 (on march 22, goes up to 2.75) per ride so you'd only need 12 rides to break even. It's nice to hop on the subway for a short ride and not have to worry about it. Wait for people to get off the train before you try and get on. Wear some comfortable walking shoes, you're gonna walk A LOT.
If you need to look up stuff on your phone, find a place off to the side instead of stopping in the middle of the sidewalk. bring a battery pack for your phone, cuz looking up directions and the like kills your battery. Foursquare is great for dining options around you, that's what I used to find places to eat.
the Citymapper app was invaluable, it'll tell you exactly what train/bus you need to get on to get where you're going, along with ETAs.
If you're asking for directions or help, get straight to the point. the 'excuse me, i was wondering if you could help me' is too wordy for new yorkers, I experienced this first-hand lol. Honestly there were a few rude people up there but really they're just straight to the point.
The other comments are spot on, I just spent 3 days there a few weekends ago.
Have you tried Citymapper? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.citymapper.app.release It works (and looks) great on the watch.
con citymapper se clicchi su una fermata ti fa la lista dei mezzi che ci passano e i minuti di attesa per ognuno. puoi anche cercare nella mappa per numero di fermata.
I use citymapper for this. They do pull the bus locations (along a line map) and arrival time from somewhere, and can also track which stop you are at along your journey (and thus provide alerts to get off as well). Have been using it for a couple of years and it has been quite accurate. Also bonus points for have default daily commute settings.
Tanto o Cytimapper como o Moovit te mostram o caminho.
Hands down the best public transport app I've ever used in the area. Not sure if it'll help you here, but I thought I'd shill for it anyway!
Pour les franciliens et les lyonnais : <strong>CityMapper</strong> est indispensable. Il met à l'amende les applis de la RATP, du TCL, de la SNCF et d'autres applis payantes.
If you're going to spend some time in major cities, get Citymapper. It's not big on offline, but it gives great public transport instructions in London, Paris, Madrid etc...major cities only, but it's indispensable there!
I just got back from DC last night, and as far as public transportation, I highly recommend using the app Citymapper (Android/iTunes).
Citymapper, for public transit scheduling.
For every city I visit I used to use custom apps for each public transit system. Now I just use one, and not only does it look better but it includes tons of features that most of the individual apps don't.
I try to keep my apps FOSS (cuz I'm one of those people) but this is one proprietary app I've just fallen in love with.
You may want to try City Mapper to get an idea of the trip. In my experience it's a little more reliable with regard to times than Google Maps.
These have been around for a while in London. My personal favourite for the Underground too is Citymapper (supports many major cities, not just London/England).
The list in order as they appear.

Citymapper?? This is like the only public transportation app.
Citymapper - probably the most useful app for public transportation on Android.
My friends and I did the same last year!
If you want to travel around, use an oyster card. It's like a card for public transport. More info here: [link]
Journey planner app for public transport:
Or as an app:
Crazy barber experience (Full service including neck cracking, a wash, shoulder massage and drinks)
Biggest cinema of Europe (/the World?)
M&M store (weird experience, crazy expensive but pretty fun to look around)
Comic book store (figures, shirts, comics, props) [link]
The ATM's at the airport/railroads have pretty high service costs, use the ones near supermarkets in the city.
It can get pretty hot in London but it can also rain heavily, keep this in mind when you pack.
The Metro's are (almost?) 24/7, check their times in the citymapper app in advance to make sure.
Have fun at the festival!
> the subway
That's a sandwich shop here. What you're looking for is the Tube.
And yes, the Tube is very easy to navigate. The map is straightforward, and the Underground has a design policy going back decades with regard to easy-to-read and easy-to-navigate station signage.
Pro-tip: order a visitor's Oyster card now and they'll deliver it to you in Canada. It's only £3 but you'll actually save over paper tickets doing things this way, as paper ticket prices are extortionate.
Before you leave, download Citymapper (iOS/Android) as this will give you far more accurate transport information from point to point than Google Maps.
My recommendation would be to get the Picadilly line from Heathrow to the West End (Picadilly Circus or Leicester Square), walk around a little bit and then go on to check out a museum or two. They're free! You can walk to the Houses of Parliament (Big Ben) and Buckingham Palace easily around that area too.
Le A3, c’est le dernier téléphone qui fait moins de 5’. Si c’est ça que tu cherches, c’est parfait.
À 5’, je conseille le Moto G5 pour son rapport prix/perf. Perso, j’en ai eu ras le cul de foutre <300€ dans un objet que je risque tous les jours de faire tomber, de me faire voler et qui risque de tomber en panne juste après la fin de garantie et qui deviendra obsolète au bout de 3 ans.
Je regrette beaucoup mon Z3 Compact mais voir que l’écran commence à déconner 15 jours après la fin de garantie, ça m’a refroidit.
Pour les apps, voici ce que j’installe à chaque fois :
F-Droid : The app store that respects freedom and privacy
Face Slim : Connect to Facebook
Gallery (A gallery for viewing photos and videos)
KeePassDroid (KeePass-compatible password safe)
KISS launcher (Custom launcher)
NewPipe (Lightweight YouTube frontend)
Red Moon (Screen filter for night time phone use)
RedReader (Client for reddit.com)

Loyalty Card Keychain (Manages barcode-based store/loyalty cards on your phone)
CineTime (Application OpenSource, sans pub pour les horaires de Cinema
Et aussi, j’ai vu hier sur HackerNews, Firefox Focus/Klar. À priori, c’est un Firefox plus léger, orienté anti-pub et tracking. Je ne sais pas ce que ça vaut encore, je vais l’essayer.
Try city mapper.
I'd like to say that CityMapper app (for android and iOS) is infinitely better than the RATP app, and you should definitely download that instead. It is very user-friendly and has a lot of really awesome features.
For that I use City mapper
City mapper, if you're on android. Works okay even without service most of the time.
Citymapper ftw! Works great even when travelling overseas in other major cities.
Download Citymapper! It's the best for public transportation all over big cities around the world.
If you have an android phone, this is pretty nice: [link]
there is now an update in the play store. its a shame that the prob was only with OPO as the app is essential for any londoner [link]
ProximiT isn't on Android, but I really like CityMapper. I don't remember if they have a widget though.
I used Citymapper with CaBi but don't know of one that integrates to the degree you seek.
I know I'm late to the party, but if you're using public transport, you should absolutely download Citymapper.
This app gives realtime info on NMBS delays. I don't get why Google Maps / Now can't.
>Esistono buone app mappe che segnalino posti rilevanti, stazioni metro e whatnot?
Citymapper, Google Maps e TripAdvisor
I go by CityMapper app to compare between available route-options.
Besides, you can also text the stop-id (just check the one in TTC pole, or shown as part of suggested-route in CityMapper app) to 898882, to find out the real-time status of buses, in case they aren't that frequent. To be sure, CityMapper also gives real-time time-estimates.
Iove this one but it is still in beta in Japan. Hopefully fully functional soon
FYI, there's an app that already does this and it's amazing. It was designed for London (it's awesome there) and they've expanded into other cities including Montreal:
Also on IPhone. But cba to find a link. Just look for citymapper!
That's the Android link but it's on iOS too. Citymapper will be the best app for you to use and see the best way to commute!
