As the year comes to a close, Moovit unwraps big data from millions of trip requests performed in 99 cities across 24 countries; Combined with user research, the report depicts valuable insights about the way people moved around in 2022 using public and shared transportation
San Francisco – December, 2022
Moovit, a leading Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solutions provider and creator of the popular urban mobility app, is unveiling its end of year 2022 Global Public Transport Report. The report is composed of big data analyzed from tens of millions of trip requests performed by Moovit app users, coupled with user research in 99 cities across 24 countries. The result portrays a fascinating picture of how people traveled using public and shared transportation following the COVID-19 pandemic, which cities experienced the hardest impact on ridership, and global rankings for the best and worst public and shared transit experiences.
Moovit’s report shows that in 2022 public transportation became less efficient across the United States and the world, due to increased commute and wait times. The report also shows that people commuted farther distances via public transit than they did in 2020.
In the United States, data was analyzed in the Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York-New Jersey-Connecticut, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Francisco Bay, Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, and Washington, DC-Baltimore metropolitan areas. Metrics in the report include commute duration, wait time, number of transfers, trip distance, reasons that may encourage more public transit usage, and the impact of COVID-19 on transit ridership. The report also examines how and how often micro-mobility is used.
Fast facts about public transit in the United States:
“Almost three years ago, COVID very quickly disrupted people’s travel habits and urban congestion plunged. Moovit’s report shows that in 2022 people ventured around their cities once again, but are experiencing less efficient commutes,” said Yovav Meydad, Moovit’s Chief Growth and Marketing Officer. “With congestion on the rebound, Moovit’s 2022 Global Public Transport Report can be a beneficial tool for any city or transit agency looking for an updated and accurate picture of the daily travel habits of locals and may help in the decision-making process to make getting around more convenient.”
