Transit app Moovit rolls out more personalized trip-planning features

The Transit app aims to be more helpful when it comes to helping users get to their destination. Starting today, the app is introducing more personalized trip planning capabilities to 3,500 cities in 112 countries to build on its existing route suggestions.

One of the new features is called smart cards. Fills in travel suggestions on the home screen based on factors like your location, the time of day and week, your previous activity, and items you mark as favorites. For example, if you’re on the go and you’ve set your home as your favorite destination, Moovit will automatically suggest the best public transit options to get you there. On the other hand, if you’ve saved your work address, the app offers public transit suggestions to travel there during weekday morning commutes.

A recent trips card shows transit options for destinations you’ve searched for within the last 30 days, on the same day of the week, and around the same time. You’ll also get public transit suggestions for a nearby stop you’ve marked as a favorite, as well as departure details for nearby stops. In addition, you have the option to go back to your last itinerary. You can swipe between all of these cards, which appear just below the search bar.

Another of the three new features is called Smart Trips. You can set your preferred transit options when setting up the app or from the settings menu on the Suggested Routes screen. That should be useful for those who prefer not to use the subway, for example. While you can select transit options on Google Maps, this is done on a trip-by-trip basis. The ability to save preferred transit modes should save Moovit users time.

The last of the new features is Smart Returns. You can quickly select a ride back to the last location you left from. On the Itinerary screen, you can set a return departure time and receive a notification with suggested routes when it’s time for you to get going.
