Public transportation planning app Moovit has announced a new feature for iOS and Android users today that enables you to share bikes in more than 200 cities.
While there are dedicated bus, train, bike and all sorts of other transportation apps available, having to download a whole bunch of them just to get across town by different means of transport is a bit of a drag.
A new era of tech events has begun
We’re back in New York this November for the 4th edition of our growth-focused technology event.
However, from today, Moovit users are able to do all of this from within one service, including finding and renting bikes from established services, like Santander Cycles in London, CityCycle in Brisbane, Australia or Bixi in Montreal, Canada.
“We always aim to provide our users with access to as many localtransport options as possible,” Alex Mackenzie Torres, Moovit’s CMO, says. “The integration of bike sharing into the app gives our users more freedom in deciding how they want to travel around their cities and also provides more eco-friendly options for getting around.”
To use the new feature, all you need to do is search for your preferred bike location on the map and see where they are available (or where there are slots available to return one). Then tapping ‘get directions’ will take you straight to your chosen ride or empty slot.
The bike sharing feature is available in the US, Canada, the UK, major European countries, Japan and Australia.
