Trainsity Hong Kong Windows Phone App

Find your way around Hong Kong city's subway using the high resolution vector maps of the train network. The following metro rail lines are available: East Rail, Kwun Tong, Tsuen Wan, Island, Tung Chung, Airport Express, Tseung Kwan O, West Rail, Ma On Shan, and Disneyland Resort lines.

The maps have small file size footprints but with many levels of zoom and can work offline without connecting to the Internet. Users can click the train station box labels to open Bing Maps, where they can use all the functions of the external app to visualise the surrounding area and/or perform routing for directions.

There is also an offline function to calculate the best way to travel from a station to another station with a direction breakdown and timings (which may vary from the actual travelling time).

On a Windows Mobile 8+ handset, the app will display tiles of train lines, which when tapped will open up a detail view of the metro transit map, as shown below.
 
Tapping the station labels will bring up an option menu where users can choose to display the station location in Bing Maps.


If you want to find out how long it takes to travel from one station to another, and the best route to take, simply swipe to the Route page. Then type in the From station and To station. As you enter the values, a drop down list will appear and a station can be selected from the list. Finally, tap the Execute icon.

Tapping the more details link will display the recommended route to take.

Click the button below to download the app from the Windows Store.
Get it from Microsoft
