Nov. 12, 2020

Partnership aims to meet a variety of mobility needs to improve urban mobility, reduce congestion, and grow ridership

First Transit recently announced a partnership with Moovit, a leader for Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solutions, which would enable the transit provider to bring MaaS solutions to public transit agencies of any size.

When combined with proprietary innovations, First Transit says Moovit’s MaaS technology can simplify mobility for millions of commuters across the U.S. and Canada. This is First Transit's first partnership with a MaaS-focused provider.

Passengers use one application that allows planning and paying across multiple mobility services including bus, train, subway, ride-hailing, car-sharing, carpooling, and micro-mobility options such as bikes and scooters. The app provides comprehensive urban mobility information, including multimodal trip planning, real-time arrival information, service alerts, booking, contactless payments, and e-tickets.

For transit agencies and operators, First Transit’s partnership with Moovit’s MaaS solutions aims to meet a variety of mobility needs to improve urban mobility, reduce congestion, and grow ridership. MaaS provides real-time vehicle location, operations data for administrators to optimize routing, and easy integration for customized solutions.

“First Transit’s partnership with Moovit gives passengers complete flexibility to plan and pay for their trip across multiple transportation platforms, all through one app and one combined payment,” Brad Thomas, president of First Transit, said in a statement. “We constantly seek innovative solutions to increase mobility options and meet the evolving transportation needs of the communities we serve.”
