Moovit Rockets To No. 1 Public Transit App In The World Powered by Hyper-Engaged User Community
Crowdsourced data contributed by 28 Million user community in 700 cities makes more cities accessible by providing 40% of new transit maps in 2015 (60% in Q2/15)
Moovit, the intelligent public transit app, today announced its position as the number one public transit app in the world. Over 28 million people across 700 cities in 58 countries now trust Moovit to get them where they’re going, more than any other third party public transit app globally, including the transit services offered by Google and Apple (www.moovitapp.com).
Proving the model of scaling local transport services at a global level, Moovit’s growth rate across the world shows no signs of relenting with a new city added every 24 hours thanks to the active community participation adding crowdsourced data.
Moovit’s leadership is powered by its hyper-engaged user communities and supported by its editor platform. This platform lets users map entire transit systems so communities without any readily available public transit information can also benefit from Moovit - no other app empowers its users in this way. This has resulted in impressive user and engagement growth in 2015:
- Collectively adding over 3 million data points during 2015
- Global coverage includes nearly 300 metro areas and 80 cities currently unavailable by other transit apps (40 per cent in 2015 and 60 per cent in Q2 of 2015)
- 20,000 active users comprise Moovit’s editor community in more than 100 countries to provide the most transit information
- Overall, Moovit has impacted 28 million people via its community based projects using the editor platform
Moovit’s mission is a simple, yet ambitious one - to make every local journey smooth. To this end, the app offers the most robust and precise information of any transit app. The carefully designed service combines all local transportation options into the one place. Moovit not only returns valuable time back to commuters but also relieves the negative psychological effect of waiting and worrying about the nature of a journey, providing more control and peace of mind to users while making cities smarter. With Moovit, getting around a city on public transport is now as easy as driving your own car (often even easier).
“We’ve been continually amazed and encouraged by the extent of user participation around the globe. People are really keen to make a positive difference to their neighbor’s travel experiences, and this altruism is helping build smarter cities with more efficient public transport experiences across the globe,” said Alex Torres, VP of Product Marketing, Moovit.
Moovit is supported by $81.5 Million in funding from key investors and industry players including BMW, Nokia, Keolis and Sequoia.
The Moovit app has everything you need to travel on public transport the smartest, speediest and easiest way possible. By combining information from public transport operators and authorities with live information from the user community, Moovit offers travelers a real-time picture and the fastest and the most comfortable routes. User Reporting functions even let travelers share live conditions about their routes, including line changes, facility conditions, incidents, and other circumstances that can affect everyone else too. The more people use Moovit, the more real-time information concerning buses and trains is distributed.
