In a city of 1.3 million residents, and 10.6 million tourists in 2018 alone, Prague may feel congested at times, pushing many to use public transportation to get to their destination more efficiently. To pass the time, every rider has their go-to apps, like Spotify or Candy Crash, to make their commute feel short.
Now, there’s an app available to Prague citizens and visitors alike, which will help them cut down on waiting times and even suggest the best and quickest routes to get to their destination – actually making the commute shorter. Users even know in advance if they have time to finish up that “pivo” before heading home for Christmas dinner or make a dash for the tram.
Moovit is the world’s most popular urban mobility app. With over half a billion users in 3,000 cities across 94 countries, Moovit’s iOS, Android, and Web app guides users in getting around their cities more efficiently and conveniently. It is also the first app providing real-time information and guidance on Prague trams, in addition to buses, trains, and micro-mobility options such as e-scooters and bikes.
Users have access to the following information from Moovit in the palm of their hand:
Directions: Users can plan a trip by simply inputting their destination. Once the destination is determined, users can view Suggested Routes and receive step-by-step directions, as well as live arrival and departure times.
Stations: Users can view a map of stations near their current location, as well as scooters and bikes nearby. For each station, users will find a list of lines that stop there and when the next vehicles are arriving in real-time.
Lines: Users can also search for specific transit lines to see their full list of stops, and next vehicle arrivals. They can also access the full transit schedule for a specific station.
With real-time information, service alerts, and live reports on station or tram crowdedness, it’s safe to say that many people will be spending less time waiting for the bus in the cold, and a more convenient time getting home from this year’s Christmas markets.
