Moovit app exceeds a million

The Moovit mobile app for finding best public transport routes now has more than one million users worldwide.

The app incorporates real-time public transport data together with info from Moovit users to suggest ways to improve routes - collecting and sharing crowd-sourced data with users who keep the app open as they travel.

Launched in 2012, Moovit covers many cities around the world, and almost the whole of the UK. Of its one million members, more than half are reported to have joined in the last 4 months.

Moovit explains:
'You anonymously share your public transport vehicle location and speed simply by riding with the app open during your trip. You can also choose to actively contribute relevant reports such as overcrowding on the bus, an accident that causes delays or an inaccurate station location on the map. By doing so, you join together with the community to create the best real-time public transport data and extract much more from the existing public transport infrastructure.'
