The admin team at Tti has put together a list of what we believe to be the most useful apps for students arriving in London!
London is big and if you’re not used to the public transport system, it can be confusing. Citymapper is the best public transport app in London. Every possible transport method is there: London’s tube, buses, Overground, trains, even bikes and the ferry, all mapped out in the app’s main page. Citymapper’s main strength is accuracy and you can also share your ETA to let your friends know how long it will take for you to arrive.
This is a great app to have, especially when you’re travelling to unknown places or late at night and want something more reliable than public transport. Choose your ride and set your location. You’ll see your driver’s picture and vehicle details and can track their arrival on the map. You don’t have to pay cash in the taxi as the app allows you to pay using your debit or credit card. Plus, it’s cheaper than a traditional black cab.
Time Out app
Time Out is a UK travel magazine. This app is great for getting to know what’s on in London. Discover the best things to do in our city. Discover and explore new places to eat and drink in the city with curated lists of great restaurants, events, bars and things to do every weekend – complete with pricing details and location of said events.
