Mobile app of the day: Moovit

Moovit is one of those transport-related apps that can help you out when you are stuck somewhere unfamiliar, or need to plan a trip you've not done before. It has a host of really useful features designed to help make travelling easy.

Of course it covers the UK, but Moovit also caters for a huge number of other world cities in countries including Australia, Brazil, Turkey, Russia, Spain, Italy and more. And, of course, Moovit is very strong on the USA and Canada too. Check the country coverage at the Moovit website.

Along with trip planning come features like line maps so you can see the rail, underground and tram services in your current area, and information about current and future service issues. Moovit can even send you travel alerts. Cleverly, the app combines open source public transport information with live crowdsourced data – so the more people who use it, the more accurate it becomes. Moovit could be a great travel helper at home, and a really handy companion when you go abroad.
