Take Public Transportation

When you're in a bustling city and don't want to rent a car for a few days or take an Uber or Lyft everywhere (expensive), then public transportation is your best bet. These apps make it easy to plan your trip around town.

Transit • Bus & Subway Times

This app is the ultimate mastermind of public transit systems

Transit • Bus & Subway Times

Find stops near you

For users of public transit who want to be in control.

Public transit can be annoying. Sometimes you're in an unfamiliar area and aren't sure about the routes available. Or maybe you're waiting for your regular bus, only to have it not show up, and are wondering whether it's just a bit late or if you'll have to wait for the next one. Transit has you covered. The app can show you all of the available public transit lines near your location and tell you when the next vehicles are expected to arrive. And if your transit line of interest supports it, you can see the real-time location of whatever mode of transportation is on its way toward you next! The app is also helpful for planning routes, which might include answering questions for you such as "if I need to get to the mall on Saturday by 9 a.m., what's the latest train I can catch?" And to make things more convenient, information about the next departures for lines you mark as favorites show up in the iOS Notification Center widget, along with in the Apple Watch app.

Why we love it

We've found that this is the most comprehensive app for becoming aware of public transit lines surrounding you in supported cities (and a lot of cities are supported!).

Get Around Town

Being in a large new city means it can be tough to get around if you're not familiar. Fortunately, these apps make it easy to get a ride anytime.


Forget old cabs and check out the new modernized taxi service


Find a ride near you ASAP

For responsible adults who would like to save a bit on taxi rides.

Uber allows you to be in control of your taxi ride via your iPhone and Apple Watch. When you open the app, you'll see the live location of Uber cars near you so you can request one to pick you up. After being alerted of your driver's arrival, you'll be able to jump into the Uber and get a ride to wherever you're going. Once you get there, you pay the driver securely from your iPhone. Usually, this is cheaper and more convenient than a traditional taxi. However, it is important to consider that Uber is not supported in all cities, and in many cities where it is supported, concerns have arisen due to lack of regulation. Uber vehicles don't have the same safety features as traditional cabs, and the company is constantly feuding with municipalities over the lack of regulation and establishment as a legitimate taxi company. Keeping that in mind, as long as you're a responsible adult who has a few friends to tag along with you, Uber can be a more fun, convenient, and cost-effective option for travel. Plus, it's not like a regular cab is 100 percent safe, either.

Why we love it

With the latest update rolling out to Uber users, you'll have access to even more power over your travels. Instead of having to edit your destination when you need to make multiple stops, you can set several destinations when you request your ride. On the destination screen, just tap the plus sign next to the empty field. This adds more options for stops, but you have to do it in that order. Otherwise, you'll go to the fare summary screen and have to tap back to do the multiple destination option. Uber reminds you to keep stops limited to three minutes or less, or your fare changes. Recently, the ride sharing company began charging a waiting fee if you didn't come out to your Uber right away, so the fee will probably be along those same lines. The fee is $0.35 per minute in New York City, and varies by location. As of right now, Uber limits you to three stops on your trip. That's enough to make a quick jaunt to two stores or other locations before heading back home.


This app will always be there when you need a lift


See your ride history

For those who want to use a modern taxi alternative but don't like Uber.

Lyft is another alternative to traditional cabs and taxis, but it is also an alternative to Uber. Lyft lets users request a ride from wherever they are in the city, and you get information about the driver who is coming to pick you up as well as the car that they are driving, so you won't be able to miss them. The app lets you see if there are even any Lyft drivers available in the area, there are different types of Lyft rides that you can get. Fares in Lyft are typically even cheaper than Uber, and you can even tip the drivers after the ride if they provided good service, which is another thing that sets it apart from Uber (no tips). Lyft is a cheaper and friendlier alternative to both taxis and Uber, so if you want a lift around the city, make sure to use Lyft.

Why we love it

Lyft has a slick app interface and it is super easy to use. Plus the company itself is friendlier than Uber and the fares are cheaper. Plus, you can tip the drivers if they provide good service, which is always nice.

Hyperlocal Weather

It's good to know the weather when you arrive in a new place, right? These fine apps will help you keep track of what's happening around you, wherever you go.
