Depending on where you get off, you could end up walking a bit to the right street exit or to your next platform. Citymapper will tell you the best spot to hop on and off your train for the nearest possible exit. Advertisement Like Google Maps, it tells you how to get from Point A to Point B using your city’s subway system (it currently works in 30 cities around the world, with more to come). But beyond the basics, Citymapper comes with a few features that make it worth using. Namely, their Train Car Exits feature shows you precisely where to sit on the train so you can be in the best possible spot to exit or transfer when you reach your stop: Advertisement In trips and GO mode we will advise you where (front / middle / back) to get on the train in order to be best positioned to the exit / transfer when you get off. In peak hours this will knock minutes off your journey time and lead to more combined zen in the city. The app can alert you when you reach your stop, too. It will also tell you how much the subway costs, comparing prices to taking a cab along that same route. Another cool feature: it shows you how many calories you can expect to burn if you take that same route by foot or bike.
