    Moovit is a must have. We used it nonstop while on our NYC vacation. NYC is big and spread out but getting around is a snap with this app. Just punch in where you want to go (restaurant, hotel, attraction, address, etc...) and it tells you how long it will take to get there and (1) which subway station is closest, (2) gives you gps walking directions to get there, (3) tells you which line to get on, (4) lets you know how many minutes until the next 3 subways on that line will arrive at your station, (5) tells you how many stops until you need to get off, (6) shows you a list of all the stops until your departure, (7) updates that list as you ride, (8) alerts you before your last stop telling you to get off, and (9) gives you walking directions to wherever you are trying to get to. As a visitor I don’t know the terminal ends of the subway lines, and that is what the subways say on them and on the signs. It would give users more confidence if the app said “D toward Brighton Beach” so you feel better about getting on a train going towards a destination you don’t know. That said, the app was always right and the only time we got on the right line going the wrong direction was because we second guessed the app.

  • Made LA Easy Sep 7, 2019

    By BChanelmusic
    I sold my car about 4 months ago and decided to give LA Public Transit a try. It took me a bit to get acquainted with the properly, but once I figured out how everything worked it was truly a life saver. So far, the app has been incredibly accurate with regard to their real-time bus arrivals. It also does well with connecting you to other types of public transportation and has been pretty accurate with real-time predictions of the Metro trains. Their customer service is also great. I have email them a few times with questions or suggestions and they’ve always gotten back to me within the day. My first wish is to be able to customize your route so that you don’t have to use the suggested ones or if there is an area you’d like to avoid when traveling. My second wish is that you could plan ahead. Once you hit play, it will begin navigating you. It would great to have a function where you could set the app to being navigating for a future date and it remind you to leave. Similar to what you can do with Waze.

  • I’d recommend this to everyone! Aug 5, 2018

    By doglover9754
    I’m not lying, at first I got TheBus2 despite their review but then when I found the link to the app on their website by accident, I was honestly surprised how good the app was! It’s easy for me to navigate, I just found out that it will notify you when to get off, you can search up all the bus lines in your area, it tells you how long a walk to a stop is, and you can even call an Uber! It’s honestly amazing! I don’t see this app as social media or location revealing since at the beginning, the app does ask if you want the app to use locations all the time, sometimes, or never. But if you are a parent and are considering this app for you or your child, I would definitely get it! How would I know? This is my first year catching the bus as I am an incoming freshman!

    Thank you! The app was very helpfull while traveling in Antalya. The only thing is once or twice buses didn't come according to the info, but 5-10 minutes later. Definetly recommend to someone traveling to Antalya, helps to save on transportation cost.

  • Use this app if you like getting screwed over Dec 14, 2018

    By rytrom
    I live in Israel. This app has screwed me and my friends over too many times. It will tell you a bus is coming at a certain time and then it just never shows up. Then, you look for another route and it tells you that the exact same bus is coming in 10 minutes instead- which it doesn’t. Today I had to walk 2 km to get to another stop because it was the only available route after I wasted 15 minutes waiting for a bus that never came. After I got off that bus I had a connection bus to take me to my final destination, but surprisingly enough that bus also never came. I ended up getting to my destination a few hours late due to factors that were not even in my control. I do have to give this app some credit because it works most of the time, but I can’t even remember how many times it screwed me over.

  • Drop from Glory Jan 15, 2019

    By Noventa nueva
    This app used to be great. A few changes have occurred the last few months that have made it extremely frustrating. Before, I could load previous trips from the home screen. This meant not only the two locations I was traveling between, but the time at which I had searched for the trip. This was extremely useful because if the app closed, I could reload the trip at the push of a button, and know exactly where I was on the route and when I needed to get off. The second thing that changed is that the app crashes very frequently in the background. When I’m traveling and have to reload the route, I now have to wait until I get on a stop so that the app can show me the bus I’m currently on. This can get extremely frustrating when I’m traveling on routes I’m not used to. In addition, when I have Live Directions set, the app still crashes in the background! I just had it happen and that got me to write this review. It’s so frustrating that the app crashes a lot and I can’t reload entire trips from the home page. Just adding that one functionality back into the app would make a huge change in performance and usability of the app. Can the developers explain why they got rid of it?

  • Unreliable but some useful features Sep 30, 2018

    By Greg Takashi
    I have primarily used Moovit with AC Transit in Berkeley and Oakland, and the app has been very unreliable regardless of the line, time of day, or day of the week. It usually doesn’t get the arrival times right. I made the mistake of not checking nextbus today, and now I will be standing at a bus stop for the next half hour because Moovit didn’t take into full account tracked buses and the unreliability of bus schedules. I downloaded the app with the hopes of having an alternative to nextbus, but unfortunately was disappointed. The only redeeming quality of the app is the fact that the app provides you with notifications as to when you should prepare to get on or off your bus. However, even this is flawed, as arrival notifications are usually given after the bus has already departed. I can only hope that the developers improve the most fundamental aspects of their app.

    It's great on timing the bus arrival. It just doesn't show all the buses you would like to choose from at times. So far everything else it's great. Because it tells me when the bus its about to arrive and when it's the stop I need to get off. Plz work on the other buses that are near our location I do need to walk a far distance to the bus stop.

    I’ve resorted to using multiple transit app because none of them are reliable. This app is no better as it’s reliable maybe 30% of the time. For example, I rushed out of my house every day in the past two work weeks to get to a bus that would get me to work in time only to find out that even though Moovit said it was coming, it never showed up. I did the math and it was about 7 out of 10 times that this happened. I only recommend this app as a back up to another transit app, although they’re all pretty awful so it’s a gamble no matter what. I thought this one would be different. Oh and it asks you to rate your arrival times but ONLY when your transit actually shows up when the app says it will. Boo. Dislike.

  1. With Real-Time Arrival you never need to guess when you have to be at the station. Find out everything with a single tap
  2. Live Ride makes arrival times super accurate! Get notifications every time the transport is approaching your stop
  3. Why waste time on a bus or train that isn’t coming? Service Alerts lets you know about sudden changes in public transport

  • What NYC and surrounding areas need Feb 10, 2020

    By lux.con
    It does what it says: finds the fastest, easiest, or laziest route to your destination by cross-referencing differing forms of Public Transportation (which you can filter) and then synchronizing them to achieve an optimal route. It’s like Waze or Google Maps but for ALL forms of Public Transportation. Most detailed and informed app I’ve come across for PT riders. This is like Google Map’s PT options, but far superior in scope and function. COMPLAINT: One thing I can’t seem to figure out is how the step-by-step preview works. Like if I get a route that’s showing 1:20, 1:35; and 1:50 as viable boarding times for the 40-Bus line, and I choose the 1:50 time, will the train I’m taking the 40-Bus to still arrive around the same time it did for the 1:20 bus? I haven’t found a way to specify/edit certain time schedules to my own schedule. TL;DR the app is top of its class, but User Interface could be more intuitive and less bloated.

  • Good app, sometimes bad calculations Feb 18, 2020

    By DevNul1
    Moovit works great in general, but for public transit in Israel it made bad calculations for multibus trips for me. For example, I am at A and trying to go to B by public transit. Moovit tells me to walk 9 minutes to a bus stop, take bus 1 to a different stop, then take bus 2 to my destination. The problem is, bus 1 leaves in 6 minutes, and the next one won’t get me to the stop for bus 2 until after bus 2 has left, leaving me stranded at the bus 2 stop, especially when bus 2 comes only once an hour. I have to check Moovit’s math anytime I want to use it to ensure that the timing works out, and it often doesn’t. I don’t how that happens and it is quite frustrating and I have missed meetings over it. EDIT: Update to four stars for high quality and prompt customer service to help fix the problem.

  • Great tool, interface a bit fiddly May 1, 2018

    By Argella
    It's great that Moovit is available in my city (Christchurch NZ) and it's pretty accurate, but not down-to-the minute exact--not that I would hold a 3rd party app to that standard. Best feature: live ride/get off alerts. It is worth having the app solely for this feature. Now I don't have to stare out the window on my whole bus commute; the app tells me when my stop is coming up. The next most useful features for me are the trip planner, and being able to see which transit stops/lines are nearby. Helps me quickly figure out how to get somewhere. I have been able to use it in every urban area I've traveled to so far. Very handy how it switches automatically to a new transit area while keeping all my favorites/saved places for each area separately. Excellent tool for people who travel to different cities. When I used it in NYC, I was very glad not to have to read all the confusing subway schedules at the stations! Thanks Moovit Small quibbles: -Sometimes it isn't clear when I'm currently in "trip" mode. -It isn't super clear how to add favorite locations, stops, and lines.

    Didn't work. Installed, tried to search for Venice, Venezia, Venedig. Waited for 15 minutes, no results. Uninstalled the app. (As an aside, why does this app want to track my moves even when it's closed?) EDIT: In the upper right corner one can change the region. It isn't really intuitive when you're using the app for the first time (makes 1 star less), and I found it only by chance, but once you know it it's easy. And again, why does this app want to track my moves even when it's closed?

  • Issue with the Train timetable Nov 21, 2017

    By Amtrak fan
    I really do like the app and all it has to offer, it’s just one little thing which is that the NYC area when you go to click on a train line headed in any direction it won’t give you the list of times the train comes to specific stop like how it use to when you would click on the train lines direction your headed in it will just pull up a list of all the stations stops for that trains line/that train lines stops and not the list times for the trains that run and operate in, out of, and from that one specific train station your picking/choosing the train line you need. If I’m not mistake the app also does this for the bus lines as well.

  • Still Not Dependable Nov 15, 2019

    By ItsCal
    Lots of new features, but takes too many steps and too much time to get basic info. For example, “Your Location” often defaults to somewhere you were previously, rather than where you are now — so you may have to enter this manually. Arrival time may say “now” when the bus actually left the stop a minute or two ago — so you may have to switch to the route map to see whether a bus is really coming. This app is better than nothing, I guess, but it can still leave you feeling stranded if you aren’t careful. Wish I could take the developers on some of my daily routes so they could get a better idea of the key info you need and how much time you really have to find it.

  • Add all the routes Aug 30, 2019

    By keneen0101010101010101
    I want Moovit to add all the routes I can take to get to my location. Sometimes the best route Moovit shows me are not the best for me and I know there’s more ways I can get to my location. Sometimes Moovit would show me a route where I take a bus and train or something to get where I need then it’ll show me a different route where I walk then take a bus and all. However I know that I can take the first bus then the other bus to get to the same location because taking the bus in the first route and walking would both get me to end up where I would need to take the other bus but Moovit will not show me that.

  • Times and addresses aren’t always correct Mar 3, 2019

    By lms1948
    If it were JUST the times not being 100% accurate, I could give this app a pass and it would earn at least 4 stars. However, I have been finding that it simply doesn’t find addresses I plug in, or when I plug them in, THANK GD I check the route because it was going to take me to a different place DESPITE me triple checking that I plugged in information correctly. Sad. What gives. I’d still recommend the app to people with a word of caution as an alternative to Google maps; but Moovit is definitely not infallible. definitely.

  • Not ACCURATE rider beware! Mar 8, 2020

    By Corey_like_Feldman
    Once a month I give moovit another try because I want it to work and apparently just can’t shake all the masochistic behaviors lingering from teendom. Yet it always disappoints me! It’s times do not align with CTA. If you want the alleged convenient features such as the plan your arrival time at a destination to work, leave 5 minutes early. Almost every time I arrive a few min early to the first leg of my desired trip, the bus goes by before I’ve gotten to the location. What’s infuriating is that moovit says it’s not due for another 5 min. LIARS!!! All be it well intentioned. Now I’m shelling out for uber to get to work on time, boo hiss. Moovit get it together in Chicago, please! Want you to work so badly but you just don’t cut it. Sick of it:(

  • Not in English Feb 10, 2018

    By Sssweetprincess
    I am in Israel and this thing knows I am an English speaker but it gives me partial directions in English with the street names in Hebrew. So I know I can catch the bus, and the number of the bus to get where I want to go, but it indicates the location of the bus stop in Hebrew, which I can't read. Most street signs here are in Hebrew, Arabic, and English. So finding the English street name would not be difficult. Even the map they post has the street names in English. It is just the street names in the directions that are iffy. Also, I can put in where I want to go in English and it converts it to Hebrew when it gives the directions so I never know for sure that I am getting directions to the correct location.
