    I discovered this app while going to Frankfurt and I can’t imagine my trip to an unknown city without it. Before, I’d always waste time figuring out the public transport. Mooveit provided more time for fun stuff like exploring a city.

    If you want to get to one point to another using public transport, you can easily do so by checking routes that are fully wheelchair accessible. Using transit information of 7 bus services, you can conveniently get across the city.

    Getting the 20 miles from QuTub Minar to Jama Masjid is tricky if you don't know what buses to take. You can make your trip in under 1 hour with live transit times and mapped routes.

    One thing that you should know about Philadelphia is that there’s a lot of mass transit. So you want to know whether your 1 pm train js on time or you have a bit of a wait. This handy app will let you know.

    Skip wasting 15 minutes trying to figure out where you need to go on the subway. Moovit can help you find train schedules and times, you can even get subway maps so you can spend less time figuring out where you are.

    Horrible, constantly breaks down Jun 26, 2021

    Horrible, constantly breaks down, then it does not show anything at all, then only red buses, over the past three months have never show time for blue buses, I live in Hull. I will give minus 10 stars for this crap app.

    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

    So I read a lot of reviews and everybody is entitled to their own opinion. So, here's mine... Seems a lot of negative complaining. I look at the positive side. So, some things are not going to be perfect in navigation etc...So, that's when you call customer service, because each county (Transit- service) is different.This is a app-computer not a person. That's when you do your part, research. Can't always be the app, to do it for you. Now for the most part, it's a really great, and helpful app!

    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.

    Needs to make more since as for as which directions the busses travel! More specific in where there going to! Because people who don't speak the language are very confused! I like to be warned when there are detours and changes immediately! It doesn't notify us of those changes!! Maybe a monitor in the bus that maps the locations of every stop that specific bus makes so people won't get lost! It's to costs and people don't have extra a lot of the time!
  • Most Useful App I Own Aug 22, 2021

    By KirstQ
    Just took a trip to Italy, France and Portugal and used this in Rome, Venice, Paris and Lisbon. It automatically changes your metro city, tells you which bus/train/metro/vaporetto/traghetto to take, gives you time estimates for your whole trip as well as public transport schedules. You can pick your route based on what’s available right now, when you want to leave, or when you want to arrive, so it’s super handy when you’re trying to figure out when to leave your hotel the next morning to get to exhibit “x” by 8 am. You can also choose your departure location so you can start from your location now or pick where you’ll be in 2 hours so you can plan your day. They also alert you of closures and problems, track your progress in real time via gps, and alert you when your stop is coming up. This app allowed us to safely and effectively ride public transport in countries where we did not speak the language. SO effective and reduced the stress of figuring out cheap transportation. Really, this app is a 100 out of 5 stars, absolutely LOVED it!!!!

    i cant believe i haven't made a review for this app yet. This app saves my life every time i need to take the bus or train and is always correct to the time of the schedules and if the bus is late, the app will still pick up your movements and show you your stop even though the pickup was missed. They recently added the price to the trip planner so now you can see how much it'll cost, transfers included. --- something about startup is slower since i started getting ads months ago
  • Impressive Moovit App Feb 22, 2021

    By SaMay56
    This app fills a much-needed niche that was lost when the APT (Association for Public Transportation) Car-Free Books quit being published. Bravo! This is a relatively thorough and comprehensive guide with most of the local transit authorities having coverage. Being able to pick out favorites is a good thing. Missing are local transit networks in western MA like the PVTA (Pioneer Valley Transit Authority) which serves greater Springfield and the Pioneer Valley near the Connecticutt River. There may be other such local transit authorities near Pittsfield MA or in the far western MA areas to get to summer arts and music events that might be included as well. It might also perform better in dark mode on iOS devices on the mapping. Map details disappear in dark mode at present. In the Lines domain, it might be helpful to indicate major places like Supermarkets, Malls, or Stadiums in parentheses next to the listed stops and cross streets. It might also be useful to make a link next to the transit stop icons that lights up the corresponding verbal listing and vice versa when selected on the map. These are minor set-backs which are easily fixed by the addition of pertinent information and a bit of tweaking by your webmaster/webmistress.

    I have honestly not tried any other apps like this. But I don’t believe I will need to. In my opinion, I believe New York is one of the busiest and most confusing places to ever travel and use transportation in. I’ve use this app my entire trip and it has helped me tremendously. I am more comfortable going out because I know that I can get to and from without getting lost. I would say if you have a hard time paying attention to detail this app may be confusing. In New York different subways are named the same but they are in fact not all the same so with this app you have to make sure you enter and exit the exact place that it tells you or you will end up not in the right spot. But once you’ve successfully use this App once you’ll be able toUse the subways and metro buses like a pro. even if you into the wrong subway entrance it gives you what stop to look for and in the subways it tells you what stops are coming up so you know that if it doesn’t match then you’re in the wrong spot. I definitely would recommend this app

    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.

    Moovit is the best and most reliable public transportation app I’ve ever used. I found lots of other apps to be confusing or not efficient for what I needed and honestly there’s too much good to write about to fit it all. They have directions for anything from buses to ferries, it’s all customizable for your needs such as less walking or best route or least transfers(my personal favorite). Also the live schedules where you can see how soon the bus or e.t.c. is arriving in real time is very useful. Despite this feature being available in many apps moovit is the most accurate I’ve found. I’ve used this app for about 3 years now and I can’t imagine using anything else. All that being said, just like any app there are occasional glitches and public transportation is always a learning experience no matter how good the app is. But all in all this app is very user friendly, efficient and a must have for any commuter anywhere.

    If you are travelling, this app is indesepnsible. Google maps doesn't have public transport available for every area, so as a student abroad in Europe, being sure that I can get around without walking or paying for a cab is just great. The navigation is also very helpful, and the app is super easy to use.

  • Might as well just use google maps Jun 3, 2022

    By nyacade
    I had no problems with this app in the beginning, sure this app has really annoying ads but I didn’t consider it to be an issue. It gave me good routes and I followed them with no issues, I like the features where it alerts you when to get off and when to get on a bus, but it seems like sometimes those features are faulty. Yesterday, my actual time of arrival was 50 min later than the eta that moovit initially provided! I was waiting for a bus that moovit told me to get on (moovit did not give me another bus option, which it does do other times) and after the bus didn’t come in the time slot, I reloaded the app to find that it now was recommending me to take another bus, that had already left the stop I was at! This increased my eta by 20 min as well. Although I was frustrated, I had planned to come early and it was fine. In my many panics of using the app, the annoying ads will pop up, close, and then the app will constantly load until you restart it. Not a big issue, but immensely nerve racking. But after reloading it, my eta was increased by another 30 more min?? To close, I feel like the best strength of this app is to just the ability meticulously plan ahead, but at that point you may use a service like google maps that does not have any ads that completely restrict you from using it.

    Ads when you might need to chatch a last-minute bus/train??? Are you kidding me??? Also, there used to be a feture that allowed for the departure time to be set to some point earlier in the day, extremely useful in case the route/app closed in middle of traveling. That feature no longer seems to exist. Really liked this app prior to those 2 issues.

    Unreliable information. Shows non existing rout Of bus lines. Cost me more than once an entire day's schedule. Poor information quality. They don't cross reference or verify information. Wouldn't trust them with my credit Information. *edit As it happens to be, I did have to give them my credit info since I was looking for a carpool. Of course it didn't go through (unreliable) and no payment was made. Now they make it a hassle to remove my credit card. Only use it for lack of better choice

    if I could rate this any lower than one star I would. This app fails to fulfill its main, basic purpose which is navigation. The map is messy and it's directions are difficult to understand and are misleading. It regularly tells me to get off at random stops along my route, or to transfer multiple times to reach one destination. This could be especially confusing for anyone in a new area trying to use metro. My suggestion is to make the app more user friendly and easier to navigate.

    App seems ok except 2 things, one of them a huge deal breaker for me. Imagine you're in a hurry and need Move It to give you your schedule asap. Well if you don't have time for a mandatory 30 second ad then it's time to move on cause Move It isn't gonna work. Second, if Move It gets you close to your destination but you don't know where you're walking to, you're out of luck. Simply says "Destination too close" If I have to open GMaps to see where I'm going I'm uninstalling and just using GMaps

    I had this app on an Iphone and then I switched to Android, and it went downhill very quickly. The location finder is so inaccurate, it thinks I'm 10km away from where I actually am. Also the graphics look much worse. It's a useful app if you have an iPhone, otherwise basically useless.

    No map to tell you where the bus is. Just has a rediculous long list to scroll through with each bus stop. When doing a map or route search from two points, the map provided simply draws a straight, as the crow flies line from where you are to where you want to go. Straight over buildings, etc. This is the most useless thing I have ever downloaded. At least for me. Rider app is better even though its a bit laggish at times.
  • Great app if you can deal with ads Jan 18, 2022

    By the lovely darling
    I’ve had this app for almost a year now and they just started putting ads into the app heavily. I mean nobody likes ads of course and they’re annoying to deal with but when you’re standing outside afraid to miss your bus trying to figure out where to go or if your phone is on 5% and you’re figuring out what bus comes next before it dies and then an ad pops up in your face. It’s extremely frustrating and sometimes stressful to deal with. I understand this app doesn’t really have a choice considering they aren’t earning money any other way that’s why I kept the app and tried dealing with it but I wish they did it in a better way or come up with a better way to show ads because this is honestly ridiculous and I’m starting to hate the app. I used to recommend this app constantly to all my friends and family because we all took public transportation for school or for work but now I want to delete it myself honestly.

    It mostly works OK, but the Favorite feature is kind of pointless. You can't Favorite a stop and see all the arrivals for it. If you Favorite a stop on a certain line, and that line has more than one end point, the app will only show you the arrival for buses with a certain end point - you have to look at the full schedule to see the rest of the line's buses.

    Easy to use and at first I was a little confused about the layout but I only missed one bus and after that I totally understood it. It shows exactly where the bus is on the app and if it's going to be delayed so you can adjust your plans accordingly. It has made traveling for me much easier than looking at a paper schedule hoping it hasn't changed or been updated. If you are a frequent public transportation rider you need this app.

    I love this app because it really is the most accurate for the public transit in Madrid. For several months it was the only app that even listed the bus I take every morning - not even the official Madrid transit app had this line listed. My only complaint are the ads. When I'm in a hurry, being stopped from continuing so I can wait for an ad to run is very frustrating. If there was a paid version (if there is, I can't find it), I would pay for it happily just to get rid of the ads.
  • Great App, but still has issues Jun 23, 2022

    By JoeRyker
    Moovit incorporated much more aggressive advertising this year that briefly delayed transit directions before re-designing ad popups to obstruct content less with banners near the bottom of the screen. I’m adding a star back for fixing that irritating issue, but there are still some bugs that the developer team must fix: 1. Bus routes are too optimistic for traffic conditions around Tel Aviv. For example, I missed two connecting busses because the first bus was a minute late to a scheduled stop—a regular occurrence for which the algorithm needs to account. 2. Sometimes the app seems to crash or lose track of your trip mid-travel. Related, if you calculate a trip, then leave 4-5 min later, then nothing is automatically recalculated to ensure you have sufficient time to reach the departure station. So you have to manually end the current trip, back out several screens, then re-enter the destination and re-calculate fresh transit options. 3. Notifications and/or GPS tracking continues to be a bit buggy. Busses often arrive multiple minutes early or late with little or no warning/notifications. And the GPS seems to lag behind your actual position with the compass (direction you are facing) also being inaccurate at times. This review is based upon the current app version in late June 2022 using an iPhone 13 Mini and iPhone 13 Pro.
  • 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.
  • I love it… but the ads… Jun 20, 2022

    By Anubis6630
    I’ve used this when it first came out years ago. I left it because it was clearly still developing and didn’t quite fit my needs but I saw it could be something. Fast forward a few years and I’m back and it everything I expected it to become. Until the ads hit. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against monetizing the app, it at the point where it’s worth it’s weight in coin. But the ads are aggressive - when you are deciding between two transit options and minutes count, a full length ad that won’t go away for nearly a minute is a liability. Give me the option to opt out of the ad, I’d gladly pay a few bucks for the app - it’s proven itself. But being forced to deal with these invasive pop ups was the beginning of the end for my former go-to app. I really like Moovit.. please don’t make me have to moov on…

    Indispensable for getting around on the bus and commuter rail. Comes up with great options. The estimated walking times tend to be aggressive so you have to adjust for that. It would also be nice if it integrated into with real time bus tracking. However if you have this app and a real time tracker app it makes getting around easy, even in an unfamiliar city.
  • Excellent app for anybody who uses public transport Dec 8, 2020

    By astrological-visionary
    I started taking the bus to and from my college campus, and for someone who hadn’t used the bus before and had no idea when and where to go, this app saved me so much hassle. It’s overall pretty user friendly and the bus times are generally accurate (with a few exceptions). On a couple occasions it didn’t show the fastest route or it gave the wrong times but otherwise it was fine. The search function is a little bit odd. If you type in your desired location (a store or a bank or a park) it won’t show you the closest option to you. The first option on the list will be something that’s miles and miles away or in a different city when there’s definitely a closer option. Overall, a great app that just needs a couple of tweaks.
  • 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.
  • I love this app, however… Jun 21, 2022

    By _Tasha_12_
    This app is convenient for me as I usually travel by transit these days. I recommend this app to anyone hoping to check bus times quick and save your most used bus time schedules. However my only request is that you make this app more easier to understand. I feel like it is so confusing finding when a bus leaves and departs. I wish I could look up a bus and it shows me the day’s arrival and departure schedule. It requires too much looking around and searching to find what you are looking for. I want more specific information about busses and it to be easily and intuitively accessible. If this problem was addressed then to me this app would be 10/5 stars.
  • 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.
  • Jun 3, 2022

    By MJ
    i cant believe i haven't made a review for this app yet. This app saves my life every time i need to take the bus or train and is always correct to the time of the schedules and if the bus is late, the app will still pick up your movements and show you your stop even though the pickup was missed. They recently added the price to the trip planner so now you can see how much it'll cost, transfers included. --- something about startup is slower since i started getting ads months ago
  • What Happened? Jul 2, 2022

    By enterurownnickname
    I am not one to write bitter, scathing reviews, but I have used this app so often over the past three years, I felt the need to say something. First of all, the app’s accuracy and detail rivals anything else I have used, and I commute exclusively by transit and have for years and years. Moovit has been wrong on a handful of occasions, but no more than I have fingers in one hand, which is pretty dang good for something I’ve been using over several years. About a month ago, more and more ads started popping up - first an acceptable amount for a free app that has been essential to me, now an unbearable amount. Like, can’t press any single thing on the screen without getting an ad (half of which pause my music, which is a criminal offense imo), rendering the app all but unusable. I am telling you, developers, I would readily pay for this app monthly over this. It’s worth it. But when I’m rushing to see a transit schedule and have several ads pop up before I can even pull up the proper route, that’s defeating the purpose of the app.
  • UX/UI needs updating Jun 9, 2022

    By GreenMile08
    The user interface (UI) is pretty congested. In looking for something simple like what time a bus or train leaves from a specific stop, it’s pretty hard to find this information without having to look through a lot of other content/design. Something like transportation departure and arrival times should be pretty prominent/easy to find. Also, in the settings, it says Moovit’s language will mirror my phone settings. My phone is set to English and the language in the app is appearing in Spanish, which makes it impossible to understand when a train/bus schedule is modified. Please update the UX so that the language actually mirrors our phones as promised OR add a feature that allows users to manually change our language directly in the app.
  • Better than Fasttrak. May 8, 2022

    By Karmicgirl
    I was recommended to download this from Suffolk fast trak. It is better in lots of ways than that App, but still has some downsides. If you’d improved it by adding certain items to make it more user friendly, it would be great!! You can’t navigate from one page to the other easily. There are no back arrows!! In some cases you must delete every bus selected to just delete one!! Alternatives should be offered on near by bus stops. (If they exist of course). And transfers marked with a T at the stops. Makes life easier. Knowing at a glance instead of having to read a long route to find it!! I do like the app so far. I haven’t bought passes yet, but will soon. Hope that is easy to do!!
  • Great until all the pop ups Feb 21, 2022

    By grittysbff
    I’ve been using this app in multiple cities since 2016. It was once my favorite app for getting to and from anywhere. It’s the most accurate transit app I’ve used by far. I understand that they have to keep the lights on somehow but the amount of pop up ads that are on the app now make it nearly impossible to use. After trying to get over it for months, I had to delete this morning. I couldn’t even get to the Notification Center without being stopped by an ad. Again, I get that ad revenue is important but ad revenue at the sale of user experience is what has turned an awesome app into something not worth the trouble.
  • 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.
  • Great Functionality, Annoying Intrusive Ads Mar 7, 2022

    By Pjcrafty
    In terms of content, the app is great. It’s way better than trying to use the maps app to naviagte public transit. However, the ads are super obtrusive. They take up the whole screen for several seconds, which is super annoying when you need to quickly access information about a bus or train you’re trying to catch. A couple of times this has come close to making me miss my stop. It makes the app almost unusable. I’ve had to start pre-searching for routes and screenshotting so that I can quickly access its information. Please make the ads less obtrusive, or at least make it so that they can be closed more quickly. I understand that you need to make money with this, but the way you’ve gone about it makes me use the app less. I’m fine paying $5 to have ad-free access to the app permanently or something, but what you’re doing now has a huge negative effect on the user experience.
  • Too many ads May 5, 2022

    By mejinxy
    This app is great, you can just put where you want to go and it’ll give you a list of options and times; the only issue i have with this app are the ads. The ads can be up to 30 seconds long which isn't great for taking trains and busses because you have as little as 5 seconds to decide where to go. You cant even pay a fee to get rid of the ads your strictly stuck with watching long ads with the tiniest skip button. Moovit could improve by either adding less ads or making so you could pay a fee to get rid of them.
  • 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.
  • Might as well just use google maps Jun 3, 2022

    By nyacade
    I had no problems with this app in the beginning, sure this app has really annoying ads but I didn’t consider it to be an issue. It gave me good routes and I followed them with no issues, I like the features where it alerts you when to get off and when to get on a bus, but it seems like sometimes those features are faulty. Yesterday, my actual time of arrival was 50 min later than the eta that moovit initially provided! I was waiting for a bus that moovit told me to get on (moovit did not give me another bus option, which it does do other times) and after the bus didn’t come in the time slot, I reloaded the app to find that it now was recommending me to take another bus, that had already left the stop I was at! This increased my eta by 20 min as well. Although I was frustrated, I had planned to come early and it was fine. In my many panics of using the app, the annoying ads will pop up, close, and then the app will constantly load until you restart it. Not a big issue, but immensely nerve racking. But after reloading it, my eta was increased by another 30 more min?? To close, I feel like the best strength of this app is to just the ability meticulously plan ahead, but at that point you may use a service like google maps that does not have any ads that completely restrict you from using it.

    App seems ok except 2 things, one of them a huge deal breaker for me. Imagine you're in a hurry and need Move It to give you your schedule asap. Well if you don't have time for a mandatory 30 second ad then it's time to move on cause Move It isn't gonna work. Second, if Move It gets you close to your destination but you don't know where you're walking to, you're out of luck. Simply says "Destination too close" If I have to open GMaps to see where I'm going I'm uninstalling and just using GMaps

    I had this app on an Iphone and then I switched to Android, and it went downhill very quickly. The location finder is so inaccurate, it thinks I'm 10km away from where I actually am. Also the graphics look much worse. It's a useful app if you have an iPhone, otherwise basically useless.
  • Great app if you can deal with ads Jan 18, 2022

    By the lovely darling
    I’ve had this app for almost a year now and they just started putting ads into the app heavily. I mean nobody likes ads of course and they’re annoying to deal with but when you’re standing outside afraid to miss your bus trying to figure out where to go or if your phone is on 5% and you’re figuring out what bus comes next before it dies and then an ad pops up in your face. It’s extremely frustrating and sometimes stressful to deal with. I understand this app doesn’t really have a choice considering they aren’t earning money any other way that’s why I kept the app and tried dealing with it but I wish they did it in a better way or come up with a better way to show ads because this is honestly ridiculous and I’m starting to hate the app. I used to recommend this app constantly to all my friends and family because we all took public transportation for school or for work but now I want to delete it myself honestly.

    It mostly works OK, but the Favorite feature is kind of pointless. You can't Favorite a stop and see all the arrivals for it. If you Favorite a stop on a certain line, and that line has more than one end point, the app will only show you the arrival for buses with a certain end point - you have to look at the full schedule to see the rest of the line's buses.

    The first day I used this for an actual trip, it tried to tell me to get off three stops beyond my destination. I found a form to report the issue to the developers, but the "attach file" link doesn't work so I can include a screen grab. Kind of useless without this function working reliably. Disheartened, looked like it had some nice features.

I am disabled and I've been stuck in certain spots of the city and disoriented and the arrow feature would be nice to know how to use. when contacting support it was very frustrating because they just did not answer my question directly. it seems that a lot
  • Intrusive pop up ads every second Jan 3, 2022

    By admato
    Moovit worked fine for what it was before they decided to integrate pop-ups. Now I do understand the need to monetize your app and pay developers, and I have nothing against ads at all (Google and Waze have ads all over their maps). But these pop ups are obnoxious, intrusive and take up valuable time when you are quickly trying to check a route or bus. And it’s not just one per trip, it’s like every third thing you click triggers an ad. It’s a huge inconvenience when when you’re pressed for time. It’s gotten to the point where I’m using Google more than Moovit, even though Moovit’s times are better. At least Google doesn’t shove video ads in my face when I’m running late to the bus. Moovit, fix your profit model. Pop-up ads are not the solution. At the bare minimum, tweak the ads so they don’t interrupt user experience.
  • Too many ads with the new update Dec 24, 2021

    By J Tarn
    I have been using this app for about two years and it has been working great (especially during the time when there were no ads). The update a few months ago added pop-up ads which was quite annoying at times but is tolerable. The latest update with video ads, however, was so inconvenient for users since you have to wait for a few seconds before closing the ads. This is not some game apps where people are willing to sit through the whole ads just to get some bonus. To developers, please remember that people only click on this app to get to somewhere they want to be. We only use this for a few minutes per day and would not worth our time looking at all the video ads in this app when there are other options that works similarly (some with even better ui) but without ads.
  • Arrival times are always wrong. Sep 20, 2021

    By From Detroit with Love
    This app is wonderful for showing me how to get anywhere. I moved to Israel from the US and regardless of my horrible Hebrew skills, I can travel anywhere comfortably using this app. The huge drawback is arrival times of busses and the stated end-of-trip arrival times. When waiting for a bus, often a green real time indicator will show a bus is arriving in X minutes. But I find I need to add about 2 extra minutes to that number in the end. Or it will say the bus is arriving in 1 minute, but that displays for 4 minutes. I have been late to almost every single meeting I have planned using this app. To the point of where I now know I have to add 30-75 extra minutes to Moovit’s estimated arrival time. One time I was 2 hours late to a meeting 18 km away because Moovit gave me a trip plan where the buses never showed up! No holiday, no road construction, no Shabbat, just a regular day.

    Ads when you might need to chatch a last-minute bus/train??? Are you kidding me??? Also, there used to be a feture that allowed for the departure time to be set to some point earlier in the day, extremely useful in case the route/app closed in middle of traveling. That feature no longer seems to exist. Really liked this app prior to those 2 issues.

    if I could rate this any lower than one star I would. This app fails to fulfill its main, basic purpose which is navigation. The map is messy and it's directions are difficult to understand and are misleading. It regularly tells me to get off at random stops along my route, or to transfer multiple times to reach one destination. This could be especially confusing for anyone in a new area trying to use metro. My suggestion is to make the app more user friendly and easier to navigate.

    No map to tell you where the bus is. Just has a rediculous long list to scroll through with each bus stop. When doing a map or route search from two points, the map provided simply draws a straight, as the crow flies line from where you are to where you want to go. Straight over buildings, etc. This is the most useless thing I have ever downloaded. At least for me. Rider app is better even though its a bit laggish at times.
  • 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.

  • Bad ETA’s and Ads Jun 29, 2022

    By Roguehoag
    I do not have the ability to remove the ads like the app says I do. It also tells me to a “here” that looks hyperlinked, but doesn’t work. I also can’t click the thumbs up or down button for whether or not that “tip was helpful”. This app also constantly gives me incredibly wrong ETA’s. I will be 1 minute away from a stop, but if I just started the virtual trip on the app it will say something like 20 minutes until that stop. When I’m actually starting my virtual trip at the beginning of my physical trip it’s incredibly optimistic on my arrival eta. I do not think this app is linked to any sort of GPS that can track traffic, so it’s just shots in the dark. I’m so over it. No idea how the app’s rating is so high. My experience has been nothing short of frustrating.
  • Was fantastic until they introduced ads Aug 23, 2021

    By RuolingOnARiver
    I loved using this as my main app for transit, then one day ads, sometimes even ads for sexually explicit video games, would come up on my screen when I opened it. There was often no way to get out of the ads. No “x” button anywhere on the screen or “skip ads” or “you’re using a free version, if you’d like to pay x$ you can have an app without ads”. Nope, just a screen full of mystery box ads 80% of the time I needed it. This infuriation was only compounded by the fact that if I’m pulling up a public transit app, im probably looking to get on public transit in the next few minutes. Nothing like being pretty sure your bus is arriving, pulling out a formerly reliable app to check, and getting avatar boobs in the face instead.
  • Unbearable ads. Look for another app. Jan 5, 2022

    By DocMankey
    There are many other reviews on here that talk about how awful the user experience is now that ads were introduced in a recent update, they are all true. They are very intrusive and get in the way of you trying to find out information, it’s like every third thing you click you get an ad that you need to wait 5-10 second for it to end and then click the super small “X” button to close it out. It wouldn’t be so bad if the ads were just always to the bottom of your screen but in addition to that they have the long pop up ads. Truly it’s heartbreaking to see an app I loved turn into something I hate using. Take my advise and look for another app.
