New – The Mooviter Community is the Wikipedia of Transit


When we started Moovit in 2011 the transit information for my city wasn’t available so I went out to the streets
to locate stops, map routes, and gather all the information. After I gathered all
the information, I put it into the system. This is how we were able to launch Moovit services in my city. As Moovit started to grow, we had requests coming from all over the world from people basically asking us to
bring Moovit to their cities, and we wanted to expand the service but the
amount of information we would have to collect and manage in order to expand
and cover the entire planet was just too big for our team to handle alone.
So we thought – what if we could instead just develop the right mapping tools and
allow everybody to do for their cities what Roy did for his city? What if we
could provide the local commuters with the ability to collect and organize
local transit data and then share it with everybody else using the Moovit app? That’s exactly what we did and that was the beginning of the Mooviter Community. It was incredible to see this worldwide participation of people wanting to
impact urban mobility, and at this moment we realized we were truly part of
something bigger. We were a part of this global community with a shared passion, this passion to help others. And this passion transcended everything it transcended language, culture, even physical borders. People from China,
Romania, Italy, Brazil – more than 140 countries around the world came together
to improve the way people travel around. And this common connection bonded them. They came together for meetups, mapathons, discussing how to improve urban mobility
locally and on a global scale, and launching new cities around the world.
They share this aim to help others, and of course they’re helping themselves and
their friends and family and even fellow commuters they see on a daily basis, but
more than that, they’re helping people they’ve never met and probably never
will meet. So of course we are truly impressed to see all the accomplishments of our Mooviter Community. And the team here works extra hard to make sure that they get to see the impact they’re making as well. You know, if anything we’re just grateful to be a part of this you

  1. אין צורך ברישום! קבלו כאן את ההערות. כשאני מכניס נקודת התחלה ויעד סיום חובה להכניס פסיק אחרי המספר ,אחרת זה לא עובד .הורידו את המגבלה הזאת .אני מניח שלא יודעים עליה והיא מפריעה לשימוש
