Despite being available for a few cities only, it includes the most frequented ones. This app allows you to immerse totally in your destination’s transit system. It counts with Uber integration and departures in real-time, so you can compare between bunches of routes and different means of transport and choose the one that suits you the most. It can even calculate the time it would take to reach your destination in jetpack, a little silly but playful feature.

As it gets the information of your flights, hotel and other events bookings via confirmation messages it builds a great itinerary that can be shared with your travel partners.

Google Translate
