Moovit, is a different application from traditional public transport applications, because, being directed by the community and integrating official public transport information of operators with real time data collected by users in crowdsourcing.
An important fact about Moovit is that, in March 2014, this app became the first provider to create transit information for areas where no official information is available, or where local transportation agencies do not offer it to developers, by creating a "community editor" and allowing volunteer publishers to generate information about maps and itineraries to be uploaded to the Moovit app.
When transported with the "Live Addresses" feature enabled, users can transmit their data speed and location to oovit passively and anonymously. Moovit then integrates this crowdsourcing information with public transport schedules to improve the results of travel plans based on current conditions, and shares this information with the user community.
In addition to passively sharing data, users can actively submit reports, including reasons for delays, congestion, satisfaction with their bus driver, and Wi-Fi availability.
