Moovit Is On A Mission To Speed Up The Bus Ride For Commuters Worldwide

Most commuters don’t know when a bus might arrive–let alone how it might connect with another transit service–or when walking or bicycling might be faster, Erez says, speaking from his home in Tel Aviv: “Information is usually bad.”
So bad that Moovit has become the world’s most downloaded transit app. In just five years it has racked up 100 million users–roughly the same number as Waze, which Google bought for $1.1 billion in 2013. Moovit is available in 44 languages and 78 countries, and commuters in 1,500 cities, from Lexington, Kentucky, to London, Moscow and Hanoi, rely on it to get to and from work. In Los Angeles, 40% of its users access it in Spanish.
