App and widget: The most useful app for finding the best route in Madrid, that offers the best public transports in the world. The networks are complex, but Metro+ will make it easy for you. You can use the Metro Madrid network, the EMT bus network,.... Metro+ offers great information so that you cannot get lost. Besides, the "Total route" option collects all public transport obtaining the best itineray, even with walking instructions.

Now you have also the posibility to find the best Metro route out of many other cities in the world!
You can also find the nearest Metro station (not available for all Metro maps) within a radious of 10 km. Once found, you can focus it on the map, view picture or set it as start station for calculating a route.

The main features are as follows:

- Metro (several cities):
. Fast math calculations in order to find the best route between 2 stations. You can choose among several Metro networks: Madrid, Barcelona, New York, London, Paris, Rome, etc...). "Metro+" shows you also the aprox. time to complete the route.
The best route is calculated on the Metro plan tapping both stations (start and destination) or selecting them from the menu "Route". This section has got its own favourites and the best route can also be viewed on a list.
