Moovit: Public Transit Tracker

Category: 

Description of App: 

Selected by App Store as one of the best apps of 2017, Moovit is the #1 local transit app in the world trusted by 360 million riders across more than 2700 cities. With the most precise information of any public transit app, Moovit adds a new city every 15 hours.

Combining all your transit options together in a single app, Moovit gives you total control over your travels so you can finally enjoy peace of mind when riding public transportation.

Because public transportation is always unpredictable, Moovit constantly updates as transit operators change schedules or alter service, so you don't end up at a station that is closed, or waiting for a bus that isn't coming.

►Live Directions with Get Off Notifications guide you step-by-step in real time as you travel. Know exactly where you’re walking, how long (or should we say how short) you’re waiting, and how many stops are left. You can focus on anything you want while riding because Moovit will alert you when it’s time to get off--no need to constantly re-check whether yours is the next stop.

► Bike Share - For sunny days, days you don’t feel like walking, days when you feel like a little extra exercise & many other days

►Real Time Arrival information (where available) lets you know when to be at the stop so you can spend your time doing something more valuable than sitting around and waiting

►Global Coverage in over 2700 cities means that when you travel, you will still be able to ride public transit like a local
Additional Features
►The Favorites Screen lets you save locations and frequently used lines so that you get going with a single tap

►The Widget gives you immediate access to your favorite lines & locations making checking public transportation as easy as checking the weather

►Service Alerts keep you in the know so you don't end up waiting for a bus that isn't coming, or sitting on a train because of a delay that could have been avoided. When you save your favorite lines, Moovit sends you a message when there is an issue that would affect your travels

►Live Ride tracks your ride & alerts you when you’re approaching, and when you arrive at your stop. So even when you know exactly where you’re going, your mind can indulge in a wandering day dream

►Line & System Maps let you view any local transit map available as a PDF file

Other Comments: 

currently my favorite transit app. I have not tested it on a route but found planning one and getting very detailed info about each leg of the trip very well done. Seeing nearby lines and ETA of next buss is also nice. Explore the screen through touching different areas rather than swipes will give you access to all elements as far as I can se.
