Taking the ๐Ÿ˜“ pain out of taking the ๐ŸšŒ bus

Something weird happened in NYC during the recent lockdown... more people took buses than the subway. Even weirder - the lockdown ended, and buses were still more popular!

We know bus trips suck way too often. Delays, detours, skipped stops, moved stops, overcrowded buses, and seeing your bus drive away just as you arrive at the stop ๐ŸšŒ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿš.

The good news is, we've released a bunch of new features to take the pain out of taking the bus ๐Ÿ’ช to support NYC's bus-naissance.


See how ๐Ÿ˜“ crowded your bus is

For many buses across New York, we now calculate how full a bus is based on MTA's passenger data, so you can make ๐Ÿง  smarter decisions on which bus you want to take.


More bus routes will become available over time, but we already have the most crowdedness coverage of any app - covering buses even in Jersey. ๐Ÿ™Œ


Find out if your stop has been closed ๐Ÿ‘ท๐Ÿ› ๏ธ


Or if your stop has been moved temporarily

Silly bus stops, always jumping around...


See traffic in realtime for your trip
๐Ÿš™ ๐Ÿš™ ๐ŸšŒ ๐Ÿš™ ๐Ÿš™

We analyze the movement of buses in realtime to highlight traffic on your route. We also adjust the traveltime accordingly, so you know exactly when you'll arrive.

๐Ÿค– Gobot is quite busy in NYC, already deciphering the MTA's complicated subway alerts, but now he's expanded his knowledge to cover buses ๐ŸšŒ too. It's all about getting the details right. No matter how complex the underlying data is, Gobot's got your back.


See you on the bus ๐ŸšŒ ๐Ÿ’š

Buses are now convenient, green, and great for people who enjoy the view as they ride. They also have a special place in our hearts (fun fact: Citymapper started out its life as Busmapper).

Try out the new features on your next bus trip.
