Getting lost in the city can be worse than being lost in the jungle without a good map. Luckily, we live in the age of technology, and apps like Moovit are here to save us from the daily urban transportation odyssey.

No more excuses for being late, no more lost stares at the subway station looking for a map, and definitely no more panicking while trying to find the best route in a sea of lines and schedules.

So grab your backpack and put on your best tourist shorts, because we're about to explore the best app to help you navigate public transportation.

Your ally in the urban jungle

Moovit was born in 2012 in Israel, with a mission to simplify and optimize the public transportation experience for citizens around the world. 

Inspired by the tangled reality of urban transportation, they created a platform that not only provides real time information, but also integrates collaborative user data to continuously improve its objectivity and usefulness.

Since then, Moovit has grown by leaps and bounds, expanding to more than 3,000 cities in 102 countries and attracting millions of users who rely on the app to get around efficiently in their favorite places or work areas.

Mooviy: A GPS in your pocket

Using Moovit is as simple as it is effective. When users open the app, they can enter their destination address, and in a matter of seconds, Moovit offers the best available routes using different public transportation options such as buses, trains, trams, and subways.

The app is based on official data from transport operators, but what really sets this app apart is its collaborative mode with users. Users can report delays, incidents, schedule changes or service disruptions in real time.

This constant flow of information ensures that the data is always as accurate and updated as possible, allowing users to plan their trip with confidence and peace of mind.

Features that make a difference:

  • Live navigation: carry with you a live guide that tells you turn by turn how to travel along your route, alerting you when to change buses or when you've arrived at your destination.
  • Route planning: Offers the best routes using different modes of public transport based on operators and reports from other users, allowing you to plan your trip safely.
  • Schedules: Allows you to check the departure and arrival times of the different transports and has offline information available to view schedules when you are offline.
  • Real time information: Updates on incidents such as delays, schedule changes or interruptions.
  • Detailed maps: Access detailed, interactive maps with clear directions for each section of the journey.
  • Evaluations and opinions: You have the possibility to evaluate the transportation service to improve it and also, you can read comments from other users to improve your travel experience.

The conclusion of a modern traveler

Moovit has established itself as an indispensable tool. There are many aspects to it that make it very favorable. It is free, which makes it accessible to everyone, and it is available for both iOS and Android.

It competes mainly with other navigation apps such as Google Maps and Citymapper, but stands out for its collaborative aspect with users and its real time accuracy.

In my opinion, it is very useful in large cities, where governments pay attention to their public transportation. In underdeveloped cities or peripheral towns it is usually useless, because operators do not provide reliable information due to constant route or schedule changes. Since these cities do not have functional public transportation, Moovit does not have as many users in those areas, which limits access to relevant information.

Pros:

  • It is free.
  • It provides real time information.
  • It offers step-by-step guidance in real time.

Cons:

  • Depends on user collaboration.
  • Continuous use of the app can generate a large consumption of battery and mobile data.
  • Limitations in rural areas and underdeveloped cities.
