If you’re one of the people who thinks New Year’s Eve is the worst night of the year to go out or it’s just one big anticlimax, Moovit has good news for you. We can’t help with subfreezing temperatures, but we can help you avoid the chaos of getting around town.

Read on for our top 5 tips on how to make NYE a night to remember… for all the good reasons.

Tips for a Smooth New Year’s Eve

1. Don’t wait around aimlessly

You could be waiting hours on the sidewalk for a cab to miraculously show up to take you to the bar/party.When it finally comes, it picks up one of the other 15 people standing there blue-lipped, shivering and having waited just as long.

Instead, take matters into your own hands by finding the quickest route to your destination on public transit with Moovit. We’ve updated the app to provide the best schedules available, as well as real-time arrivals. With Moovit, it’s your choice to be fashionably late or not.

2. Get a step-by-step guide

Use Moovit’s trusty Live Directions feature to get step-by-step guidance on how to get the the party in an unfamiliar neighborhood. Moovit’s Get Off Alerts let you know when your stop is coming up. It’s also perfect when you’re busy chatting with friends, or if you’ve had one too many and need a reminder to get off the bus!

3. Have all the information

In addition to public transit, Moovit connects you with Bike Share and Uber in over 100 cities. This way you can check all of your options before you decide. If prices are surging because it’s NYE, you can easily find an alternative.

4. Note to high-heel lovers

If NYE is the premiere of those new fabulous, but disgustingly uncomfortable shoes you  purchased on a whim, don’t worry, Moovit has your back. When you search for your route, make sure to hit Options in the Trip Planner to pick the Least Walking option.

5. Be safe

Remember not to drink & drive, and share this with your friends so they can find a safer route home with Moovit on public transit too.
