Available for both iOS and Android devices, Teleport is designed to provide real-time cost of living calculations for more than 250 cities around the world.

Teleport Cities matches a user’s preferences (including a variety of options regarding quality of life, career prospects, city infrastructure and business regulations) with the city or cities best suited to meet those requirements.
For a general exploration of a city’s potential, people contemplating a move can browse through an overview that provides a ranking of a range of qualities for each location. The list includes outdoor space and access, tolerance, business freedom, safety, commuting, housing and cost of living and provides the opportunity to delve into the details that create the ranking. For a more detailed assessment of a city’s potential, a user can select from an array of choices in order to receive the algorithm’s recommendations. Teleport also provides an online moving checklist and coordination tools for distributed teams and continues to add to the number of cities ranked and reviewed.
Smart cities are exploring a variety of ways of making life more enjoyable for citizens, from experimenting with moving all traffic below ground to creating open house community hubs for both locals and visitors.
