Excellent public transport app

I use the app CityMapper regularly.
I enter the location of my home and workplace.

I often ask for directions on how to get from my current location to my home, work or to "an address somewhere". For the last option, the app displayed the locations that I visited recently.

This is an app designed by someone with common sense.

It shows the buses/trains that I have to take and the arrival time of the next bus. It also shows the journey time.

Along the way, it shows me the stops that I have just passed and the remaining stops to the destination.

It is well designed and easy to use.

When I was in Sydney, the app asked me if I wished to change the City. I agred. It then showed me the public transport for Sydney.

It was excellent.

I remembered that the MyTransport app from the Land Transport Authority was voted the best transport app a few years back. I don't know how they got this rating.

Based on my assessment, the voting would be
MyTransport (LTA) - 2 out of 10
Citymapper - 10 out of 10.

What do you think?
