Urban transportation tracker Citymapper raises $10 million

45 sec read

Ride-sharing startups may be red hot, but what about public transportation? And what about good, old-fashioned walking? Urban transportation tracker Citymapper just racked up a fresh $10 million to keep helping people take advantage of public transit, sidewalks, and everything in between. Balderton Capital led the round — Connect Ventures, Index Ventures, Greylock Partners, and a host of angels also chipped in.

Urban transport app Citymapper has just announced a new Series A funding round of $10 million, led by Balderton CapitalConnect Ventures (Bill Earner), Index Ventures (Robin Klein) and Greylock Partners (Laurel Bowden), also participated in the round, along with as a number of unnamed angels. The startup said it plans to use the new funding for launching in new cities, and expanding the team. There’s no firm word as yet on where exactly the service will roll out to next. But the startup is currently crowdsourcing city suggestions on its website. The urban transport app, which is currently live in London, New York, Berlin and Paris,  is designed to help users figure out the best way to get around a city — pulling in live public transport data and drawing on all available multi-modal options, from buses, subways and taxis to bikes and even walking, to suggest potential routes to get to your destination.
