Going to the Rio Olympics? There's an Israeli App for ThatMay. 15, 2016
An Israeli app will guide tourists and local residents to the fastest and safest routes to and between competition venues and also through the entire city of Rio during the Olympic and Paralympics Games this summer.
Moovit will provide real-time information in 35 languages on the fastest public transportation routes – buses, trains, subway, light rail transport, ferry boats and cable cars – to some 1.5 million current local users and another 500,000 visitors, according to Rio’s official tourism website.
Fifty kilometers of new lines have been mapped with traffic information in order to make transit during the Rio 2016 Olympics smoother. The Israeli startup, dubbed “the Waze of public transportation,” will work based on data provided by the Rio municipality database.
