What is Smart Ride?
Smart Ride is a new form of shared transportation run by Citymapper (that's us)
Building a multimodal app has taught us a lot about the journeys people make
We've found gaps in the transport network
These are A to Bs that are not well served by existing transport
We're running a new form of transport to fill these gaps: a mix of a bus and a cab
It's priced between a bus and a cab
It requires some walking, and some sharing
But unlike a bus, you can book it, and it will take you anywhere on the network without transfers
Get a guaranteed seat in a premium vehicle
Be productive during your commute
And you can charge your phone as well
Integrated in our app with credit card payments
You can book easily.
Don't worry, you can confirm before you get charged.
It will show up when it makes sense for your trip
ie when it is a competitive option for a certain A to B
Or you can access it directly from the homescreen
Use it anywhere within our coverage area
Expanding every week
The best drivers
Licensed and trained, with reliable pay
Offering a safe and secure service
They are autonomous. You can ask them any question you want, in any accent, and they will answer.
Good for the city
There are too many empty seats roaming around our streets.
Sharing rides is better for congestion, affordability and the environment
Very fit and totally proper
