Combining Public Transit with Taxi 將公共交通與的士連接
Transit + Taxi 公共交通 ＋ 的士
Traditionally there has been unfair discrimination by journey planning algorithms keeping these modes of transport separate.
We do not believe in this segregation! Every transport mode must be free to mingle, and allowed to co-exist in the city.

Our SuperRouter is now combining public transit with taxi to create new routes you never knew existed.
This is the future of multimodal mobility in cities.
Here's an example of a trip from Sai Ying Pun to Shek O. The trip that combines MTR and Uber arrive 50 minutes faster and require much less walk. Using a multimodal route will cost around $80 rather than $135 if ones takes taxi all the way!
A New Routing Preferences Screen
There is now a new Preferences page with a number of personalisation options.
By default Car + Transit will be in Lite mode, and show up in a 'Citymapper Labs' section.
But feel free to upgrade to Pro mode to see multimodal results mixed more aggressively in top suggested results.
但請隨時提升到 Pro 模式。那時你會見到更多多重模式行程在“建議”欄中出現。
The advantages of trains + the advantages of taxi
A better connected city. Access more parts of the city that might not be well supported by public transportation.
Reduced costs. More affordable options than taking a taxi all the way, especially for long distances.
Reduced travel times. Sometimes trains are faster. Sometimes cars are faster. Sometimes combining them is faster.
This is exciting. We’re fusing two separate complex networks in the city: the metro network and the road network, while accounting for real-time information such as train departures and car availability.
There is a lot to improve. These are the crazy wild early days of this new type of multimodal routing. We plan to improve our calculations of prices, travel times, transfer costs and include features such as better pickup points for taxis around train stations.
We will get better over time as we learn from your usage and feedback. Please do share this with us.
