Moovit, the World’s #1 Transit App, Teams Up with the Latke Festival to Make it Easier for People to Ride Public Transit to the Famous Potato Pancake Event on Monday, December 3

In honor of its tenth anniversary, the Latke Festival — one of New York City’s tastiest holiday happenings — has chosen Moovit as its official transportation partner for the event in Brooklyn on December 3.

Moovit will make it easy for attendees to get to the event using its #1 public transit app for step-by-step directions using the subway, bus, bike-share, ride-share and ferry, so they can spend more time tasting the luscious Latkes than figuring out how to get there.

Attendees are able to plan their journey using the free-to-download Moovit app or by clicking here Moovit also will provide in-app pop-ups to local users to help them find their way to the event.

The Latke Festival is a benefit for The Sylvia Center, the nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching children and their families in underserved communities cooking and nutrition through hands-on experiences on the farm and in the kitchen. It will take place at the Brooklyn Museum from 6.00pm – 8:30pm and be presented by Great Performances, the acclaimed New York-based catering and events company. The evening will showcase more than 25 latke creations, from the classic to the decadently imaginative, by chefs from such establishments as: Benchmark; Daddy O’s; Dutch Boy Burger; FONDA; FryGuys; Jacob’s Pickles; Korso; Kulushkat; Mama O’s; The Norm; Riss’s Knishes; Shelsky’s of Brooklyn; Veselka; and White Tiger.

Moovit is proud to serve the local community in one of the largest of the 2,600 cities Moovit operates in worldwide.”
