    Ric and I experienced the same initial euphoria when we first traveled to, then moved to, Rome. No need for a car! Reliable transportation! We walked to and from work most days but exploring the city, doing our errands, the bus was our choice from 2012 to 2016. When we arrived in 2016, Romans were screaming because the bus fare had gone up from 1 Euro to 1.50. Merde! In London and Paris, it is multiples of that! Imagine our shock when we first traveled to Paris and found buses ran on time, the app was precise and correct, and the bus drivers actually monitored fares!

    Next time we visit, a piede or by taxi, I think.

    Have you tried the app Probus Roma instead of Citymapper?

      It uses ATAC data to track the buses in real time and can show you where your bus is along the route. (Should be noted that I’ve never used Citymapper for transit and I don’t know its capabilities.)
