Moovit public transport app launched in Mumbai


When millions of Indians head to their destinations by public transport every morning, a battle begins. This battle is now a little easier with the launch of the public transport app Moovit in Mumbai.

Moovit is used by 30 million people in more than 800 cities around the world. Since its launch in Bangalore last October, it has registered 95,000 users in India.

“Rather than waiting for a late bus or not knowing when it might finally arrive, Moovit provides the latest information on your bus’s arrival time and when you need to leave your home or office to get to station on time, ”Alex Mackenzie Torres, CMO, said.

“Moovit provides more accurate and live information about the schedule and routes than what is otherwise available to the public,” says Alex.

Moovit is a free local transportation planner. It features live arrival and departure times, updated line schedules, local station maps, service alerts and notices that affect transit trips, all with the help of ‘a community of other users.

It combines information from public transport operators with live updates from users. Travelers can also send active reports on their travel experience, such as bus congestion levels and cleanliness. “The power of Moovit comes from our cycling community around the world,” says Alex.

The startup was founded in Israel in 2012 by Nir Erez, Roy Bick and Yaron Evron. Nir launched the app after feeling frustrated with the inaccuracies of public transport data in Tel Aviv.

A graduate of Mamram Academy, Nir holds a degree in physics from Bar-Ilan University. He is also the founder and CEO of ActionBase and Eyron Software Solutions.
