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.

Second to none

I’ve been enjoying Citymapper for years, and still I don’t see any serious competition to its truly comprehensive and sensible routing algorithm. In London it’s well-rounded, but it’s also taken pressure off finding transport information in cities like Paris and Warsaw for me (the fewer apps the better). I don’t know how, but even pedestrian directions are superior to those of Google Maps. The multitude of routing options is also a big plus for me, I hate when transport apps insist on select few ridiculous combinations just because in one minute they make sense.

Any improvement ideas? (1) Fare information is wrong on some routes, for instance Clapham Junction to Shepherd’s Bush – it treats Overground and Southern trains differently even though there is no fare difference on that section (ticket gates don’t know which exact train you took and fares are set by route not by provider). (2) I wish there was a way to plan walking tours, i.e. to set a route consisting of multiple points. (3) I sometimes struggle to cancel directions and the app keeps working in the background – there is no easy button to do that. Anyway, those are minor points, and the app is miles ahead of its competition.

It used to be great…

I think I’m done with this app tbh. I went to Berlin a few weeks ago and my mates told me this app is not good in Berlin (I’m from London). I thought it was weird but actually they were right, I found it to be really unreliable and it would not display correct timings and occasionally send me the really long way around, like asking me to walk around a park instead of throughout. This park has recognised footpath as when you walk through it it changes the path… Anyway, I got back thinking it was a quirk of being in Berlin as it had rarely messed my journey in London. But since then I’ve noticed it quite a few times send me the long way around ir not display trains which I’ve missed because Citymapper said they’d already left, with me leisurely strolling to a station to realise I just missed my train or my bus that I could have caught had I known it was mere minutes away.

I really lost a lot of respect for Citymapper after the rubbish they’ve pulled with the subscription model. But I get it, they want to make money and this is clearly a viable method for any business. Otherwise not every company, and their mothers would be adopting this horrid business plan, but that’s the world we live in. However it being glitchy/unreliable as well as limiting my travel options is really crap. It’s sad because it’s my favourite of the apps to use, I think google maps has slightly unappealing UI but guess I’ll have to get use to it because I’m done with this.
