The Google Maps Guide to London Travel

Citymapper is a near perfect public transport routing app for London commuters. The application allows users to plan journeys via bus, tube, train and even includes information about London's bike sharing docking stations.

Users just need to add their starting point (or share their location with the app) and enter a destination. Citymapper then displays a number of routing options, via bus, train or tube, with journey times and the cost for each option. Users can rollover each displayed option to view the route displayed on a Google Map and a step-by-step guide for each route.

Citymapper also allows users to select individual tube and train station or bus-stop on the map to get real-time information about live departures from each station or bus-stop. It is even possible to view the location of bike sharing stations and view live information about the number of bikes and spaces available at each station.
