Moovit raises $50M to expand urban mobility operating system

Posted on February 21, 2018

Moovit App Global Ltd. closed a $50 million Series D round led by Intel Capital. All Moovit’s earlier investors participated, including Sequoia, BMW iVentures, NGP, Ashton Kutcher’s Sound Ventures, BRM, Gemini, Vaizra, Vintage, and newcomer Hanaco.

Moovit’s free app provides comprehensive transit information to more than 120 million users in more than 2,000 cities in 80 countries. The company has amassed the world’s largest repository of transit data and generates more than one billion movement data points a day. Moovit shaped its data into the Smart Transit Suite to help municipalities and transit operators better manage their networks.

Professor Amnon Shashua, sr. VP of Intel and CEO/CTO of Mobileye, will join Moovit’s board of directors as an observer.

Moovit Co-Founder/CEO Nir Erez said the company will use the funds to continue its mission to be part of every urban mobility trip. This includes expanding its global sales team, enhancing its consumer products to support user growth, and investing in its Mobility as a Service (MaaS) platform.

“Moovit expects to surpass 1 billion users by 2021 and to expand significantly the number of cities that use Moovit’s data analytics to improve urban mobility,” Erez said. “We are especially thrilled about our plans to collaborate with Mobileye. It’s a synergistic relationship at an exciting time to be shaping the future of urban mobility.”

The infusion of capital brings to $133 million the total raised by Moovit.
