Moovit

Moovit helps public transportation riders worldwide navigate their local transit systems with little to no hiccups along the way. Enter your location in the app to find the closest public transit stations near you with the next arrival times of each mode of transportation. You can plan trips in advance or use the app’s live directions to navigate public transportation and get to your destination.

Moovit’s key differentiator is its social component, relying on its community of riders to help tip off others on things such as delays, trip conditions, and commuter congestion. This crowdsourced information can also be aggregated by the MBTA to analyze both short and long-term trends in order to deliver better service.
