Microsoft's 'Bing Get Me There' London travel Windows Phone app updated

Bing Get Me There

The Microsoft "Bing Get Me There" app, a helpful tool for anyone who's considering to travel through or/and around London, has been updated to now be able to report live updates for the DLR (Docklands Light Railway), London Overground and London Buses. The app is useful should you also require quick assistance to get home (or to a rail terminal) with a pinned tile opening up directions from your current location to the configured "home" in the settings.

Note that the LiveSide article is incorrect by stating that this is the only service that bundles together London's transport networks with the DLR, Overground and London Buses, as London Travel also sports live updates across the board (and is a must-have good app for anyone residing in/traveling through the big smoke).

One can download Bing Get Me There from the Marketplace for free.

can't wait to try it out. Even if the navigation doesn't work it'll be great:)

Oli Gill says:

I'm a Londoner and use a combo of London Travel and Next Bus UK to get around. Will give this a go and see how it fairs

Oli Gill says:

Pretty impressed already, just needs to be able to pin lines/stations to tilescreen with live status updates. Very impressed with the route planning indeed

Jay Bennett says:

It's a definite improvement over the previous version but I don't think it will persuade me away from London Travel as my first port of call just yet...

munichlondon says:

How does it fare versus the London Travel app Oli?

Oli Gill says:

Well London Travel has: oyster card data, and much much more in the way of live tiles but doesn't have live bus info.
The bing app covers much more of london and has (limited)national rail info. Tbh for tourists you don't really need bus info as you will be sticking to central London where you might aswell just take a tube. They both have pluses and minuses :-S

munichlondon says:

Cheers Oli. I live in London (EC1). The live bus info sounds really helpfull.

I used this app when I took my daughter to the Doctor Who convention. It worked an absolute treat.
