Moovit 3.6 is here

Introducing … Ride Mode!

Moovit is taking things one step further.

Now you can not only check exactly when your next bus or train will arrive – you can ride all the way with Moovit. Boarded a bus? Start Ride Mode – you’ll get your exact ETA updated throughout the ride & even get notified when you’re approaching your destination.

– Make sure to upgrade to the latest version 3.6 for your phone. To download or upgrade click here
– The screenshots below were taken on version 3.6 on an iPhone (Android & Windows Phone versions work the same way)

Here’s how it works:

1. Start Ride Mode – As soon as you board a bus, open that line’s schedule (or your search history) and tap on the “Go” button.
