Back, Middle or Front? Where to Sit on the Train for Quick Exits
Based on your GPS location, Citymapper tells you the train spot that will most quickly get you where you're going
Citymapper added a new feature to help optimize train travel. The application will give a suggestion of the best location on a train—the front, middle or back—to sit in based on where the passenger plans to disembark.
When using the application, users will type in their destination and a GPS will pick up their location. Based on the location, and the location of nearby trains, the app gives advice on which train station and location on the train will get the passenger the most quickly to his-her destination.
