The addition of Dayton, Ohio from the US marks an important milestone for Moovit and proves it is the only application you need for transportation worldwide
Today, the world's most popular transportation app, with Moovit announcing the 1500 City, has proved to be the only application you need in a full 77 country for buses, subways, ferries, cable cars, trams, dolmus and other public transport. The company has reached 1,500 in just four years and five months. The total population of these cities is about 1,1 billion, while the number of users of potential public transport is 550 million people.
Dayton, USA, 1.500 city, added to Moovit, Ohio. One of the nine cities added to Moovit in August. The State of Ohio is also home to Moovit's 1.501 city Athens (the original Athens that was added to Moovit in 2014 should not be confused with Greece). Other new cities for Moovit are Australia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, China, France, Poland, Portugal, Spain and the United States. Moovit is adding a new city every 15 every hour. Next up is Gopiapo, Chile. Then, Plovdiv, Bulgaria; Volta Redonda, Brazil and Maryborough-Hervey Bay, Australia will come.
Chosen as the best local app on Google at 2016, Moovit distinguishes itself from hundreds of local transport applications managed by bus or rail companies, municipalities or independent organizations that compile and re-offer public transport data. The presence of Moovit everywhere is due to its uniqueness in collecting transportation data. The company has created the world's largest transport data pool, bringing together existing data of public transport, including departure times and live information, with data from more than 70 million (crowdsourced) and the strong local volunteer community of the 180.000. Moovit uses this data in its application to provide everything they need, including the most accurate driving directions and location of public transport stops, for local users to reach the city in the easiest and most convenient way through public transport. But Moovit does not only use this data to facilitate the day-to-day transport of its users, but has also transformed this data into some valuable tools for city planners, municipalities and developers who rewrite and manage future transport rules.
"The world is on the brink of a major transport revolution," says Nir Erez, co-founder and CEO of Moovit. Iyor Urban mobility is at the top of the list as a solution for smart cities to be better equipped and coping with their rapidly growing population. Moovit, with its deep data pool of hundreds of millions of data added each day and its unrivaled analytical tools that clearly represent the demand for transport in cities, makes Moovit a unique attribute in the mobility service (MaaS) to help implement the future of urban mobility.
