Watch app is terrible‼️ 1/5
The watch version of Citymapper doesn't even work properly on the Series 3. It's extremely slow to navigate but worst of all is that it it hardly finds any routes. It'll just keep loading indefinitely. Keeping you waiting. Once you can miraculously get it to find a route and start it, you have to navigate all the way to the end of the route and end the trip to get back to the main app view. Very useful on paper but the actual watch application is trash.
I live in NYC, and I use City Mapper to get around the city. It provides real time updates, is user friendly, and gives you different options in terms of transportation. One thing I like about this app is that it gives you an overview of your trip, and the directions are pretty clear so you don't get lost. I would also recommend downloading Google Maps though, just as a backup if you can't find a good route or if you do get lost.
The only transit app 5/5
This is the only transit app that you need. Best one hands down
Loving citymapper 5/5
Best app of its kind, works near perfectly for Paris 5/5
This app is the best for getting around (in Paris) the bike+metro combo, metro options and times more accurate than Google Maps, suggestions for which exit/entrance of the metro and which part of the train to get on (front/middle/back). It goes on... I'm sure there are things I haven't even discovered yet!
Used in TO and NYC and love it! 5/5
By Gina girl genius
Only thing I wish it had was an explainer on how to use each transportation system! Great if you already are familiar with how the trans system you're using works and where everything is. Otherwise, google maps will give you satellite and street views of stops, etc that is a little more useful. Still mastering the GO feature more but all in all a great app!
By H.T. Glover
Sometimes it's got the times nailed down, sometimes it's so far off as to be completely useless and counterproductive, its results encouraging one to wait for one train when they would save a half an hour doing otherwise. Relying on this app in the past has cost me dearly and caused a lot of stress. While it's a much better app than Google Maps for inner city transit that's not saying much at all.
Cuts transfers too close 3/5
Every trip I plan using this app results in a missed connection.
Used this app exclusively to navigate London on vacation. So versatile and well thought out. I've never reviewed an app before but this one made me want to share it with others!! When in London try the buses. Even in traffic u can usually sight see while getting where you want to go.
The one must have app when you travel 5/5
The best app for getting around London and since I travel a lot it makes my commute options in whatever country I am in easy. Always being updated so it always has something new to offer.
Keep up the great work.
Best transport app 5/5

Must-have app for travel 5/5
By Rachel Mink
I'm studying in Copenhagen and this app has been absolutely essential for getting around the city. I 100% recommend it for anyone traveling in Copenhagen; it's made my life so much easier, especially planning travel.
Every traveler should have this app 5/5
This app makes it so easy for me to travel in cities easily and affordably. I was in London for a three day trip running around all over the place and not once did I have to pay for an Uber or cab thanks to Citymapper. As someone who is from a small town and doesn't have a ton of experience riding subways and trains, this app is a lifesaver.
I've trued many others, City Mapper far exceeds other's I've tried! I hope this transit app keeps growing! what I like best about it is that it is a travelers best friend, especially in metro areas like NY, Philadelphia, & Chicago!
Changed How I Travel 5/5
This app has changed how I travel - seriously. It's so much more than just a reference for city maps. It allows you to set a home point where you're staying then from there you select where you want to go and it gives you all of the options - walking distance, subway/metro stops, bus stops, etc... it also provides expected timing so you know if it's an hour walk and a 20minute subway ride you can maximize your time. Never thought I needed this app until I started using it - 5 stars!
Best navigation app out there. 5/5
By Crazy Molases
Great app that works everywhere!
Search could be better 3/5
I love using this app over the weekends in NYC when trains are never running on the correct schedules or lines.
I do wish it had a better search, most of the Tim it's hard to find what I want. I wish it used google places search.
Also, integration with contacts would be nice.
Love it! 5/5
It's a great app, I use it almost daily! Very helpful 👍🏽
Easily switches between locations. In DC for example it is better than the. Us company website
Even I can use it! 5/5
I am 71 and not so iPhone app friendly. But this is so easy to use even I can do it. Step by step instructions in many cities I visit and at home. I never have to feel lost again.
So far so good ... 4/5
This app is pretty good I can't complain. I've used many travel apps because I don't drive and also I'm not trusting of others and their sense of direction so this app shines from the rest. It's very organized and thorough, offers ample options of travel and gives the overall ETA and travel expectancies. I suffer from anxiety and like to be prepared and this app tends to sooth and prepare me for what to expect and potential travel threats... which some may consider "doing to much" but for some people the doing to much offers a peace of mind. I love the fact that I can share my travel (similar to when you share your cabs travel with people you care to follow your trip) it's makes me and my loved ones feel safe. The only complaint I have is when using wifi with this app the possibilities are endless and I have no worries in inquiring about my trip but say I have a trip spark up and I'm already outside and I need immediate travel information... it's kinda hit or miss (even after I've adjusted my cellular data settings) but otherwise everything else is Great 👌🏼👍🏼
Best transit app I've found 5/5
Works better than anything else I've used. Local, foreign countries, works everywhere. The best.
Excellent App! 5/5
Very helpful app with 100% up-to-date info. Was using it during my stay in London and it was perfect!
Great little app with so much useful information.
Incredibly Helpful 5/5
By Andrew (@basicgrier)
I used it in a recent trip to London and it saved me an immense amount of time as it shows the fastest and cheapest ways to get from point A to B in a very simple way. I totally recommend it.
Amazing App 5/5
Made me feel like a transit pro when traveling through New York, London, and Chicago. Front page app!
Essential! Must have! 5/5
This app has helped me find my way, avoid getting lost, and make smart travel decisions in several cities, including my own! It's a must have app. It's even programmed to suggest which train car to ride in to get to your destination faster.
Best app for traveling! 5/5
Recently went to Europe for the first time with the family and this app was so useful in navigating public transportation in every city. A must have when you are new to a place and want to avoid worrying about finding maps and schedules.
NYC commuter necessity 4/5
At least for me. I like the status notifications. Approximate travel times are usually accurate. I use this app more than any other. Pretty good.
Must Have 5/5
By Stir Fried Pear
This app is incredible. Beautifully designed and easy to use, full of useful information, and perfect for commuters. It provides you with detailed step-by-step instructions on how to get from point A to point B in the fastest way possible and even compares the best routes for you. It's a must-have especially for people who are new to any city
Super Easy to Use 5/5
My hubby and I just came back from NYC. We used this app so much- either for walking or the subways. There is a gps/navigation in the app so if you turn and point your phone left or right you can tell if you are going the right direction down the street to your destination. Hopping on the subway was really easy, the app told you which train and which direction. It also tells you how many stops, which car you should get on and even which stair way to take out of the metro station to get you the closest to your destination.
The only place we got a little turned around in was grand central station (that place is massive) but once we got to the street we were able to figure it out quickly.
BEST info, works great busy look 5/5
By Disney-Machine rebel
First used on trip to Paris worked great! THEN realized how well it worked back in the U.S. as well.
Citymapper had bus/train arrival times that other apps said were "unavailable".
I can view and save favorite bus/trains and view them ALL at same time to see connections. Looks a bit busy at first but you can change to view what you need. Very nice app.
Awesome in London 5/5
Just got home from a couple weeks in London. First time in the city for us. This app made determining our best option on travel between two locations in the city very easy. We used the app several times a day with great results!
Routes can be planned with wifi and saved and used offline. When using live, walking directions (ex. From tube stop to destination) were much better than google maps and picking up orientation and direction. Appreciate the multiple routes/multiple transport options.
Anxiously waiting for the jet pack option to become operational.
Cool but missing some routes 4/5
The only routes your missing in Boston is 11 and 88 Massport bus routes can you add that please. And also the Boston MBTA Commuter Rail has a new stop called Boston Landing so add that to map.
And also for arrival change routes from time to minutes on some. And also please add Boston bus traffic.
Best real time routing information. This is a great app. The only thing it's missing is better integrated system maps including of the whole system as well as detail on street level entrances and detail on where to stand on the platform for optimal exit stategy which I get from another app. Keep improving!
Great for public transporters! 5/5
By ZJ Li
What I love the most is that user can see stops from the map, which makes it very convenient to keep track of where you are, and request for stop on the bus!
Best nav app! 5/5
By No more sore eyes
Lifesaver for a newcomer to
Best traveler app EVER 5/5
Just fantastic and so easy to use. Worked wonderfully on my London trip. The Get-me-Home option is fantastic. I love this app!
My go-to commuting app. Take your commute with go and easily see when the next train or bus is coming. Easy top 5 apps on my phone.
the BEST transit app for NYC & Boston !!! 5/5
I live in NYC and I use this app nearly every day for the MOST ACCURATE times for buses and trains. 99% of the time (unless it's the first stop, of course) the app gives you LIVE times, so you can definitely tell when it's coming. I used to take ridiculous routes to get around the city, but now this app narrows down time for me. I took a trip up to Boston last spring, and navigating the city was SO easy and convenient thanks to this app!! I encourage all citygoers to use it
This is quite well done and while it may miss some routes in a few cities, it is by far the best solution I have run across. I hope to see them add other services for the applicable cities (like lyft, grab, mytaxi) to rate along with Uber.
GO DRAINS BATTERY 3/5
By My Phone is at 81%
Amazing app, but Go drains too much battery compared to Transit app.
has everything i need, and a pleasure to use
Get it 5/5
Even a life long New Yorker finds this app useful to get around town with. Nuff said
NYC Tourist 5/5
Worked Great on 2 separate visits to NYC back 2014 & 2015.... I suggested to a friend who went a couple of months ago and he loved it, trying it for Chicago next month.
It's just ok. It doesn't give you all the possible connections from bus to train or train to train. It doesn't give you very early commute information either. I have to look at a bus map, then try to time when the bus will get to the train station I need, and then enter that as my start time in order to use this app.
The app is useful 4/5
It needs more improvements
Accurate & brilliant time saver! 5/5
By User forever!
Used this app in Singapore and Sydney and it was excellent & accurate. Highly recommend it for everyone. Very easy to use. Also a great help-guide for kids on public transport. Brilliant!
Incredibly helpful 5/5
Used this app for a recent trip to NYC, made traveling around the city so easy. Awesome.
No Chicago Metra 2/5
By Adam Cole
I love everything about this app except when I'm in the Chicago suburbs, it won't work, which makes me sad.
