In preparation for the upcoming EURO competition, leading transit app Moovit will be included in the mobility section of the UEFA EURO 2016 Fan Guide app to provide football fans with a convenient way to get to and from games in each of the 10 host cities. Moovit is a free transportation app that combines official transit data with live information provided directly by its Community of volunteer editors, which has saves commuters valuable time and removes many of the frustrations associated with commuting on public transport. Moovit users are also able to send reports through the app about their travel experiences, such as congestion data, cleanliness, unexpected cancellations, service changes and more. This crowd-sourced data is then presented to other users in real-time so that they can see what changes may impact their current journey as they travel through their cities.
UEFA will launch the UEFA EURO 2016 Fan Guide app, presented by Continental, to enhance fans’ experience and excitement when traveling throughout the tournament in France. One of the many benefits of the app is the mobility section, where fans can find transport directions with
Moovit and enjoy smooth journeys on public transport across all 10 Host Cities. Users can plan a route wherever they wish to go: with a push of the button Moovit will guide them step-by- step with live directions that update in real-time like GPS. With this great feature, users can spend their time following the matches instead of figuring out how to get where they’re going.
Ten cities in France will be hosting EURO games after it kicks off on June 10: Paris, Saint-Denis, Lille, Lens, Lyon, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Marseille, Nice, and Saint-Etienne. 24 countries are involved in the EURO competition, and a total of 51 games will be played. Over 2.5M fans are expected to attend games in the stadium, with an additional 7M fans expected to watch in the EURO fan zones. In the app, Moovit will integrate helpful information for fans getting around during the EURO games, such as fanzone locations and stadium information.
“Our inclusion in the UEFA EURO 2016 Fan Guide app is directly related to our goal of improving the public transit experience for all users,” said Alex Mackenzie Torres, Moovit CMO. “We’re providing vital transit data for football fans in all of the EURO host cities in order to ensure that users are able to get to and from games smoothly, despite the larger than normal crowds.”
Moovit is available for free for all users on both iOS and Android devices, and is used by more than 35 million users in over 850 cities and 65 countries worldwide.
