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.
Excellent tool for getting around European cities 5/5
This gives you an excellent an accurate directions to all public transportation in most major European cities for free! A must have for the backpacker.
O melhor 5/5
Excelente aplicativo, o melhor, ja utilizei em diversas cidades do mundo e foi um ótimo guia, indico sempre a familiares e amigos.
Your Best Friend Navigating NYC!! 5/5
I use this app everyday. Helps me get to work on time and to find new places quickly. Absolutely love the "cone" that helps you know if you're moving in the right direction. Two thumbs up!!!
By NPR member
I have tried many Transportation Apps and this app, by far, is the best. It is so well organized and simple to use. I have been using it in New York City mostly and plan to use it when I am in other countries as well.
Thank You 5/5
My favorite app for commuting !! Thank you , San Francisco thanks you
Super helpful but... 4/5
This app was a life saver when were abroad in London and Paris. The only thing that would've made it better was if there were step by step directions for if you planned to walk.
Pretty accurate so far! 5/5
So far used for first week and it seems pretty accurate.
Best integrated transit app I've used to date 5/5
Plots trips via several optional routes and methods, including bike, walk and rideshare. Gives real-time transit vehicle data in real time; no waiting for a refresh. Works in scores of cities. Also shows bike share availability in Philadelphia, and presumably other cities that have that capability.
First Time User 4/5
Used it for the first time today, while in D.F. in México City. It worked perfectly riding the Metrobus.
Only gave it four stars because it's my first use ever.
Will probably be inclined to upgrade to five after I use it in at least one more city.
Best NY travel app!! 5/5
We went to NY for 5 days and this app was so simple to follow. We had never navigated a subway system, so we were completely clueless. This app made navigating all over NY via the subway system, bus, and train seamless and smooth as butter. This app should be an essential item in your travel bag.
A travel essential! 5/5
I just returned from a trip to London and this app was fabulous! We used it every day, several times a day. It was awesome at offering options for tube trains and busses. For each trip, the app gives 4 or 5 different ways to get to your destination. This really gives you a lot of flexibility. The estimated times were almost always exactly spot on. It really saved a lot of time that we would have had to spend poring over maps and different transport apps. I would highly recommend this app to anyone traveling to a new city where you might be unfamiliar with getting around.
I use this practically every day 5/5
I love this app since a friend referred me to it. It's so useful to see many options for transportations, on bus, train, car, bike, ride-sharing, jet pack, and teleportation. The options allow me to make choices on how to construct the best possible trip or multiple trips to get to a place. It leaves me confident when I change my mind and use something else.
Super Convenient and Accurate 5/5
I could not image a more useful app for getting around a city. It includes every possible mode of transportation available and is very user friendly.
Awesome app! 5/5
This is hands down the best app for trains / mass transit. I've used it in the U.K., in Chicago, etc. it's fantastic! If you travel at all, it's a must have!
Perfect travel companion 5/5
This app was recommended during an early stop of a multi-city Europe trip and, OMG, if I could rate it 10 stars, I would. With it we traveled all over two major European cities and near suburbs. Not once did it fail to give perfect options nor instructions. One feature I really like is, with mobile data expensive, I could set up the route before I left wifi (or turn on data for a moment), set my destination and route, flip it off, and it would still track me by GPS the whole way! The directional "viewport" will waking to confirm direction and the "telescope" link to google street view is genius.
If you are traveling in a covered city, get this app!!!!!!!
What happened? 1/5
This app used to have killer features like alerts for when to get off the subway or bus, but they've disappeared. Also, what is the point of the bike option when there aren't turn by turn instructions or even streets is has routed?? The biking feature is utterly useless. Lastly, I've reported dozens of mistakes made to the NYC subway system with regards to how long it takes to transfer between trains at various stations but they all remain 1 minute transfers. You're telling me that I can get from the R train to the Q train in one minute at Atlantic Ave? Yea right...
Really taking the SF Bay Area and tying it together and showing the absolute insanity of why we have so many cars on the road and the failures of the North Bay and South Bay to have paid the money to realize the initial BART design, which would be a slight upgrade and maintenance procedure ongoing since 73 instead of 2 hour gridlock from Cesar Chavez to the Bay Bridge on ramp. I think you have done a great job, so great I see how I can get somewhere that I hate to drive by not looking cool getting there, but 95 cents for a transfer?
Very useful and easy to use 4/5
The app telling me which exit to take while leaving the subway was a distinguishing feature when compared with similar apps. The bus schedule in Istanbul is not real time. Otherwise this app is nearly perfect.
Everything you need 5/5
By Caipira chike
The best app, and the only one you will need in São Paulo
So so Helpful 5/5
This was an amazing help to me in Paris. I could flow quickly from one point to the other while traveling the metro. It even gave suggestions about which car was likely to have the most seating available. The walking part of the app is also very useful unless you are at an intersection with 6 roads leading into it. Then it was hard to grasp the correct direction to walk in. I had to sometimes walk a bit in the wrong direction to figure it out. Using the app in Chicago today and can't wait to use it in NYC!!!
They've thought of everything 5/5
Almost single detail has been thought out and implemented. The only one that they missed is integrating Google calendar, but I'm sure they're already working on that. Even though not technically functional, I love the teleportation and jetpack option when they show various modes of transportation. It's cute and makes me giggle.
Best app for NYC hands down 5/5
Insanely customizable, easy to use, and up to date to the minute all the time somehow
Took the stress out of an overseas vacation where we didn't speak the language. Great app.
Amazing! Need for all cities! 5/5
I'm writing this review because I love this app so much I want them to get more support so they can open up more cities. Seriously, this app is hands down the best transport app I've ever used. It can get you anywhere you want to go in Korea and you don't have to be able to read any Korean. Highly recommend this for your next major city visit!
Citymapper is the best 5/5
By The flying tomato 2.0
This is the best app for navigating the NY subway system. I'm a tourist not a local so locals might think differently, but as a tourist I can say it's the best... I went from riding only in taxis and spending a TON of money to riding the subway..I am now able to navigate NYC via the subway bc of this app. It's the best.
Living in NYC, this app is a must-have. Gives you all possible ways to get to your destination. It's up-to-date with service changes. Widgets is mighty useful too. Did I also say it's free?
Waiting for Anchorage map! 😡
Amazingly good 5/5
Living in Seoul. This app is superb. Wish I'd discovered it months ago.
great for CTA 5/5
just moved to chicago and i'm still trying to get a grasp on city life. this app definitely has relieved a lot of my anxieties about using public transportation. thanks!
Phenomenal travel app 5/5
By Done Listening
I'm not sure how we would have survived a recent trip to NEw York City without this app. Great interface, and ridiculously precise time table listings.
For transportation information, it doesn't get any better than this app.
Great for San Francisco 5/5
This app works amazingly—it's very helpful for public transportation in SF. Highly recommend!
Bowled over by this app 5/5
Update: Love the CATAPULT option!
I downloaded this app a few months ago when I friend showed me they told you the best car to get on in the NY subway to make your exit at the next station easier. I'm new here and couldn't figure it out. Hey also have rain-safe directions, bus only and a bunch of other options. I ain't never going back to Google Maps. Thanks Dev!!!
Best getting around app 5/5
I use this app mostly in DC and NYC it is great for getting from point A to point B and easily comparing ways to get there (walk vs bike vs transit vs uber/lyft). You can also look up future depart/arrive times to plan your trip in advance based on transit schedules. A+ app.
If you goal is complexity, this is your app 1/5
Citymapper seems to believe the harder to access the information you need the better. In recent iterations of the app, that means a single infinitely scrolling view of cards of information, so that finding what you want is like finding a needle in a haystack. The app seems to have no intelligence, so you can be sure the info you want will be as far from the starting point as possible. This is their new philosophy after giving up on their 3 side-by-side screen design, which at least meant less scrolling to get to what you needed.
Other than Apple Maps and Google Maps, it does seem that every dedicated transit app out there only gets worse with every version, not better.
Best city map EVER 5/5
I live just outside of Boston and I have gone between several transit and city maps on my travels. NOTHING IS AS GREAT AS THIS APP. It will simplify and change your life. Its everything you could want, an absolute MUST for everyone anywhere.
Citymapper: faulty GPS accuracy 1/5
I absolutely hate citymapper. GPS is not accurate in NYC. Follow the instructions step by step but my location was not accurate and could get on time for my flight back home.
The best! 5/5
As a constant traveler.... the best. Thank you.
Navigate like a local 5/5
Must have app to avoid transit confusion. Used it during our entire trip. So extremely useful!
Best app 5/5
Wish there were more cities, but overall this app was a godsend traveling in Barcelona, Rome, London, NYC etc
Worth it 5/5
Great app! 5/5
Definitely recommending Citymapper to my friends & family. Very very useful!
Life. Saver. 5/5
Being a new New Yorker, this app has saved me almost every day. It's more up to date with the service changes than google maps and gives you every single possible way to get somewhere. You can favorite the trains you take the most to get notifications on delays and service changes. It's truly a life saver and I can't live without it now.
NYC trip 5/5
A friend that once lived in New York recommended this app to me after I commented on the difficulty of understanding New York's subway routes during my trip. This gives you alternate routes to choose from, types of transportation, and expected time arrivals. I love this app!
Traveled New York with ease! 5/5
Helped me travel the subways of New York like a Pro!!! Absolutely loved this App!!!!
SUCH A LIFE SAVER!!!!! 5/5
I recently came back from my first NYC trip and this app literally guided me all around New York, being a Texas native myself i have never ridden a subway before i was very intimidated but Citymapper was there to help me! The step by step directions helped so much!
Almost perfect, Some minor glitches 5/5
I use this in NYC subways and buses when I'm literally running down the street and into the subways. This is the only app so far that appears to have real time train and bus times. I don't know for sure where they get their data but it seems to match the MTA real time information. Other apps that I use seem to get their data from pre-written time tables which, in NYC, is absolute BS.
On the Apple Watch I've been on the street and seen the app match the approaching bus. I've been underground and seen the app match the exact time that the trains are coming and, as we know, city trains follow no schedule.
For some reason the app won't sync my saved locations from my phone to the Apple Watch. The app on the phone works solid but the Watch version has a few hang ups for now
So Very Useful 4/5
This app is so useful and easy to use. It's an awesome addition to your phone. I highly recommend it.
