Today we’ve launched the third major release into our ever-improving beta site.  This one has two cool new tools to help you get around London using all the services that we have to offer.

Nearby is a completely new tool which places you on a map and shows you all the Tube, bus, river, Overground, DLR, National Rail and Cycle Hire locations around you.
