Hitting the 100-country milestone mark, Moovit now serves over 720 million users in over 3,100 cities, across six continents.
Moovit, the Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) solutions company has announced that the app has reached the milestone of providing service in 100 countries. In addition, Moovit has announced the hire of Uli Gal-Oz as VP Business Development.
Introduced in 2011, the urban mobility app is said to guide people in getting around towns effectively and conveniently, using any mode of transport.
In addition to the app’s coverage expansion, the company is further heightening its position in the U.S. mobility industry. Gal-Oz will work out of the San Francisco office where he will manage and liaise with Moovit’s strategic customers and partners, including the likes of Uber, Microsoft, Cubic, TomTom and others.
“Urban mobility is the lifeline to jobs, healthcare, and education. We are so proud that in just a few years Moovit is now providing service to hundreds of millions of users in 100 countries, helping them get from A to B with confidence and convenience,” said Nir Erez, Moovit’s Co-founder and CEO. “We have grown drastically, from offering a consumer app, to also now licensing a multitude of MaaS solutions to cities, governments and transit agencies. We are also glad to see the likes of Uber, Microsoft, and Cubic choosing Moovit’s high-quality MaaS platform to power their mobility offering.
“Uli’s expertise perfectly positions him to assume the role of managing relations with partners such as these, and further strengthen the Moovit brand as we continue to rapidly expand. We are excited to welcome him aboard.”
“Moovit’s dedication to simplifying urban mobility is unmatched and I’m thrilled to bring my experience to the team,” Gal-Oz said. “I’m looking forward to growing with Moovit and maintaining its leadership in the urban mobility industry.”
