What is Citymapper?

Hey there! So, let me tell you about this cool app called Citymapper. It’s basically like having a personal navigation guide for the city right in your pocket. If you’re someone who travels a lot or spends a ton of time exploring the city, then this app is perfect for you. Its tagline is ‘Making Cities Usable’ and boy, does it live up to that! You can get it on both iOS and Android, and it has received rave reviews from users.

Now, let’s talk about what Citymapper actually does. It provides detailed street maps for a bunch of cities around the world. From London to Milan, Lyon to Los Angeles, and many others. However, it mostly covers the larger cities in America. So, if you’re planning to visit a foreign city, it’s definitely worth checking if Citymapper has it mapped.

But wait, there’s more! Citymapper doesn’t stop at just showing you maps. It also includes information about public transport routes and schedules, whenever available. So, if there’s a subway or metro system in your city, you’re in luck! Sometimes, you’ll even find info about trams and cycle routes. It all depends on what’s available and what has been mapped. Cool, right?

How do you use Citymapper?

I know what you’re thinking – a navigation app with so many features must be complicated to use. But hey, Citymapper actually nails it when it comes to user experience. It’s surprisingly easy to navigate.

  1. If you haven’t already, go ahead and install the app on your phone. If you’ve got it, just open it up.
  2. Once you’re in the app, tap on ‘Get Me Somewhere’ in the center of the screen.
  3. Next, type in the zip code or location you want to go to and hit ‘Go’.

And voilà! The map will show you the directions from your current location to the place you entered. Just follow the directions, and you’re good to go.

Oh, and here’s another nifty trick – you can use the ‘Nearby’ function to find local attractions, public transport options, hospitals, or other cool places around you. And if you’re in your hometown and have set up your home address, you can use the ‘Get Me Home’ function for a straight shot back to your place.

How do you change the city in Citymapper?

Switching cities in Citymapper is super easy. Just follow these simple steps. On the app or the website, you’ll see the name of the currently selected city at the top of the page. If you’re on the mobile page, it’ll be at the top, and if you’re on the web page, it’ll be at the top left. Simply tap on the city name, and you’ll see a list of available cities. Choose the one you want to switch to, and bam! The app will load a new page with all the juicy details about your new city.

Now, keep in mind that not all US cities have been fully mapped yet, but Citymapper has covered quite a few already. So far, you can find detailed maps for cities like Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. They’ve got you covered!

How to Use Citymapper for Navigation

To make sure Citymapper knows where you are, make sure your location settings are turned on. Once you open the app and enter a city, you have several options for navigation. You can manually zoom in and out on the map, use the “Get Me Somewhere” function, check out the “Nearby” function to see what’s around you, or use one of the specialized maps for subways or metros.

The easiest way to navigate in unfamiliar cities is by using the “Get Me Somewhere” function. Simply enter a starting point and an end point, and Citymapper will give you step-by-step directions. You can choose your current location or select a point on the map as your starting point. You can also type in a specific location. The same goes for your end point. Citymapper will calculate the route and show you on the map where to go.

Meeting up with Someone in Citymapper

Citymapper also allows you to share your journey or plan a meeting with someone. This is a really cool feature, especially if you’re visiting friends in a new city or want to meet up with a local. After using the “Get Me Somewhere” function and getting your directions, you can select the arrive icon at the top of the screen. This will give you the option to share your route. You can choose to share it through WhatsApp, Messenger, Messages, Email, or by copying it to your clipboard.

If the other person also uses Citymapper, they will receive a link to your route and an approximate ETA. You can send the route directly through WhatsApp or Messenger, use your SMS or email, or copy it to your clipboard to send through another app.

Citymapper is an amazing app for navigating major cities around the world. Its inclusion of public transit, metro, and subway maps is awesome and makes it a must-have for anyone visiting new cities.
