Moovit, the creator of the urban mobility app available in over 3,500 cities across 112 countries, announced that it has expanded its coverage to another 168 cities and towns across 13 U.S. states.
The Moovit app offers a total of 192 million Americans access to urban mobility information to plan their trip.
Moovit’s iOS, Android, and Web app is available for free to transit riders.
Moovit combines information from local transit agencies as well as crowdsourced information to calculate the best route for each journey with urban mobility options such as bus, train, light rail, ferry, streetcar, subway, scooter, bike, Uber, and more.
Benefits of Moovit's App Expansion
Users in many cities also benefit from real-time information so they know exactly when their bus or train is arriving, a Live Directions feature with Get Off Alerts to provide step-by-step guidance for the entire journey, and Service Alerts so they can avoid disruptions and plan their journey accordingly.
Features especially useful for Independence Day include the most updated transit schedules to see if networks are operating on normal or holiday schedules and reports on crowding levels enabling users to avoid crowded stations and lines once events are finished.
