Smartphone maker Huawei has added the popular urban mobility app Moovit to its AppGallery and users can download it right away, the company says.

Moovit is used by 865 million people in 3200 cities across 106 countries globally and provides information from different transport operators plus a user community that supplied real-time, accurate route planning for a journey.

The app uses multimodal journey planning and real-time arrival information so that users know arrival times for a bus or train. Additionally, a Live Directions feature with Get Off Alerts provides step-by-step guidance for the entire journey, while Service Alerts allow users to avoid disruptions on frequently used lines.

Larking Huang, managing director of Huawei Consumer Business in Australia, said: "As the leading urban mobility app, Moovit is a fantastic addition to our AppGallery and joins our growing portfolio of navigation and map apps, such as TomTom and Here WeGo.

"As a fully inclusive service, everyone who can use transport right now, will be able do so with more confidence through superior way-finding wherever they happen to be.

"It is our hope that this new app will provide an extra layer of ease to our customers' day to day routines or new travel adventures, as we start to safely get back on the move and even consider inter-city or domestic travel."

Moovit also has accessibility features, so disabled people can use public transport. It has screen-reading features for blind and low-vision users, identifies wheelchair-accessible routes and stations, calculates step-free routes, and has optimised menus and buttons for those with hand-motor disabilities.

"Moovit's mission from day one has been to simplify urban mobility around the world," said Yovav Meydad, Moovit's chief growth and marketing officer.

"The integration of Moovit's multimodal journey planning and navigation app on Huawei smartphones will help make daily life a little bit easier for millions.

"By being able to efficiently and conveniently plan and navigate public transport journeys with real-time information, Huawei customers will be able to get around cities and conveniently and with confidence."

Huawei is due to release its next smartphone, the Mate 40, on 22 October.
