London Public Transport Journey Planner

These are the two best tools to plan a journey by public transport in London.


Citymapper is the best public transport planning tool for London.

It’s available online or as a free app for ios or android.

It gives you the quickest transport options from A to B as well as presenting you with bus/tube/train only routes. You can also either type in a start/end destination or select your route on a map.

The adult Pay as you go Oyster card fares for each type of journey are also shown, so it’s easy to find out the cheapest route.

Transport for London Journey Planner

The Transport for London online Journey Planner works out the quickest way to travel from A to B. It’s possible to choose bus/tube/train only routes, but it’s not as user-friendly as Citymapper.

The Tfl journey planner is better than Citymapper if you have mobility issues. You can narrow down your search options to find the best route with:

  • Escalators but not stairs
  • Stairs but not escalators
  • Step-free access to buses or underground trains
  • Step-free access to platforms

They don’t have an app, but the website is mobile-friendly.
