The urban mobility app’s newest features offer each user in 3,500 cities a personalized mobility experience that considers individuals’ unique travel needs, preferences and day-to-day habits
San Francisco – July, 2022
Moovit, an Intel company and creator of the popular urban mobility app, is announcing the launch of several new features that offer a smart, tailor-made mobility experience. Moovit, which has guided more than 1.4 billion users globally since its inception, now displays dynamic and personalized predictions about what travel information and route is most vital to a user at any given time, as soon as they open the app.
Each person has their own travel needs, preferences, and habits, which is also dependent on the city they are traveling in. That’s why, starting today, Moovit is beginning to roll out new features in 3,500 cities across 112 countries, that will make it easier for each user to get where they want, how they want, when they want — with just a tap.
Moovit’s latest features includes:
“Moovit’s new Smart Cards are dynamic and are prioritized based on location, previous app activity, time of day and day of the week,” said Yovav Meydad, Moovit’s Chief Growth and Marketing Officer. “That, coupled with pre-set preferred modes of transit and reminders to head back, allow Moovit to provide users with an even more simplified and intuitive interface to improve the way they travel.”
Displayed on the home screen, under the search bar, Smart Cards are instant travel suggestions that can be scrolled through horizontally. Essentially, they are predictions of a users’ travel needs, displayed as soon as the app is opened. A simple tap on each card takes the user to the relevant Moovit screen. For example, a suggested trip card will pull up an itinerary, and if a user is nearby a station, tapping that card will take users to the station details. These suggestions are based on previous app behavior, current location, time of day, and day of the week.
They include the following types of suggestions:
Smart Cards are presented according to priority and based on data availability.
Moovit also offers a personalized trip planning experience, from day one of using the app. New Moovit users can select their preferred modes of transportation during the app onboarding process. These Smart Trip planning filters take into account how users like to ride, enabling Moovit to suggest customized routes with the preferred modes selected.
Existing users also have the ability to change their preferred means of transit via the “Preferences” control on the “Suggested Routes” screen or via “Settings” under the “More” menu.
Moovit can now remind users when to head back to the last location they departed from. Users can set up return trip reminders, specifying the time they would like to head bac, through the Itinerary screen when planning a trip.
A tap on the notification window will instantly lead users to all suggested routes to get back. Reminders can only be set for the current day and at least one hour from the current time.
Moovit can be downloaded on Google Play and the App Store.
