There’s been a overwhelming sense of discontent in Londoners who want to use the tube this summer, and with Tube strikes more likely than ever in the near future, we’re here to guide you through the best apps to help you deal with the tube strike.
Top 3 Travel Apps
We’d recommend using a this as a maximum – there’s no point in trying to use more than three travel apps at once to get around.
Switching between them would get confusing and trying to understand them all would take a big chunk out of your journey time.
One of my favourite travel apps is Citymapper. It’s so useful, even if you’re not using it during a strike.
You set your start point and destination, then Citymapper tells you all of possible routes.
It will also tell you how much each route will cost, how many calories you’ll burn and what weather you’ll hit on your journey. Citymapper even has a “Strike Safe” section so you can avoid the disrupted routes.
The most well known of travel apps, pre-loaded onto android phones, Google Maps can allow you to alter your routes via certain locations or to exclude certain types of travel (such as the tube).
This is an efficient way of avoiding areas affected by the strike, as well as giving you a real time SatNav experience.
Uber would be the obvious smartphone app for those wanting to use cabs ase a tube alternative, however, this could prove to be quite costly during times of high demand such as a tube strike and as with Uber you can track your car’s location and then pay within the app.
An alternative to conventional travel apps.
