From Wikipedia :
Citymapper is a public transit app and mapping service. It integrates data for all urban modes of transport, from walking and cycling to driving, with an emphasis on public transport. It operates by free mobile app and a desktop website. The underlying data is pulled from a variety of sources, including open data (usually GTFS-files provided by transport authorities) and local transit authorities. Some data is user-generated or collected by local employed personnel. Citymapper started in 2011 in London, which it calls “the world’s most historic and iconic public transport city”. Its second city was New York. As of December 2019, the company operates in 41 cities and metropolitan areas. Its headquarters are in London, on the South Bank, close to City Hall, where the Greater London Authority (which has responsibility for Transport for London) is based. Citymapper was founded by Azmat Yusuf, a former Google employee, who also serves as Citymapper’s CEO. In December 2019 the app added a feature which allows users to choose between a “fast” route or “main roads” which avoid dimly-lit areas.
