Transportation Apps


Apps for Trains & Buses in Europe

TIP for an iPhone
Most of these apps let you use the
iPhone's Wallet to conveniently store tickets.
 That way, you won't need to print your tickets—or stand in line at rail and bus stations!
This is now true for most airlines too, so you may already be familiar with keeping an "eTicket" in your iPhone Wallet.
