Journey Planner. Sydney is Australia's largest city with a population of almost 4 million, and is the primary port of entry for international visitors. Most recently renowned as host city of the Olympic Games, Sydney is also the business and tourism hub of the nation, and is increasingly a major centre within the Asia-Pacific region. Blessed with a wonderful setting on Sydney Harbour, and a benign climate, Sydney is a great tourist's city.

What we like: Clear and easy to understand. Different types of services are denoted well, but in a nicely understated way: grey lines with coloured ticks that relate to the suburban lines they share track with for intercity routes works very well.
Comprehensive legend and a well-considered set of explanatory icons. The grid and corresponding list of stations is a nice usability touch for those less familiar with the system. In fact, the unevenness of station name spacing throughout the whole map is one of its biggest flaws. Part of this comes from having to show all CityRail services, all the way out to far-distant destinations.
Goulburn at the bottom left is almost km miles from the centre of Sydney! Older CityRail maps concentrated solely on the suburban area of Sydney, with arrows and text indicating service to distant points, which gave the map more room to breathe. Our rating: Despite a couple of major problems, this map still manages to take a large, sprawling commuter and interurban rail system plus buses and light rail!
Clean design and nice colour choices help a lot the Bankstown Line looks much better in orange than its old brown. Three-and-a-half stars. Source: CityRail website. Open Close. Have we been there? You know it! Source: CityRail website Advertisements. Like this: Like Loading

Each update brings new cities or extra functionality! Love how it works well with Apple Watch. I traveled to china often for trade shows and noticed a couple major cities they should have but haven't include. Wrote them a suggestion and quickly received a response they will work on it. Other map available are all pretty good with travel time, route, stop locations, etc. Now I can just click on one app and just select the city I am in. I have it four stars because it's really useful and informational.
