It is no secret to anyone that technology is here to stay and Bogotá, although a little late, is beginning to move into a time of digital transformation. We can confirm this with applications that have been created by independent Colombian entities, companies and developers. Applications are tools that allow us to learn about services, buy and consume them according to our interests; this time we will look at those that allow us better mobility around the city.
Transmilenio and Sitp
This application was created by the company MoviliXa, dedicated to the development of mobile applications focused on mobility, health and well-being. With it you will be able to know everything about the Integrated Public Transport Service (SITP) and TransMilenio. In other words, you can find an interactive map within the app to find out about bus routes, bus stops, Transmilenio stations, etc. Likewise, you will be able to verify the recharge points of the Tullave card, confirm the balance of your card, among other options. The app is available for both iOS and Android devices.

Bogota bike maps
This application was created by the Bogotá Spatial Data Infrastructure, designed with the cyclists and bicyclists who ride through the Colombian capital in mind. By entering it you will be able to find certified bicycle parking lots, register your bicycle and find the routes within the network of bicycle paths that have been enabled by the District. Its operation is similar to Waze and Google Maps; You will be able to receive the route guide by means of audio with the necessary indications during the route. For better performance, it is recommended to have GPS activated. Currently the app is only available for Android devices.
Although this application is not exactly to move around the city, it does work for a break from the routine. Pinbus is an application dedicated to buying tickets to travel from Bogotá (or any other city in Colombia) to any corner of the country. You will be able to find the bus routes with their respective prices and compare them to access the one that best suits your needs. Among the novelties of the application is its alliance with Nequi to buy tickets by this means. The app is available for iOS and Android.
