Using the Moovit app, powered by Token Transit’s integrated and robust mobile ticketing platform, riders will be able to plan, pay, and validate trips in Bowling Green and the surrounding areas.
“GObg Transit is committed to providing the community with safe, friendly, and reliable public transportation services,” said Robert Gil, GObg’s GM. “It is our commitment to continue the search for new, safe, and innovative ways to improve transportation productivity and provide great customer service.”
Once a user launches the Moovit app, inputs their destination, and selects their transportation route, Moovit will display the total cost of the trip, enable in-app ticket purchasing, and provide a unique QR code for ticket validation.
The app, available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, combines information from transit agencies as well as crowdsourced information to calculate the best route for each journey. The Moovit app also provides users real-time arrival information so they know exactly when their bus or train is arriving, live directions with alerts to provide step-by-step guidance, and service alerts so they can avoid disruptions on usual lines and plan their journey accordingly.
Moovit also incorporates various accessibility features, including screen reading features for low vision users such as talkback/voiceover capabilities, identifies wheelchair-accessible routes and stations, and calculates step-free routes. The app is also designed with optimized menus and buttons for those with hand-motor disabilities.
