SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AsianGames2018—Moovit,
the world’s largest urban mobility data and analytics company and the #1
transit app, has been chosen as the official mobility app for the Asian
Games (Asiad), to be held 18 August through 2 September 2018 in Jakarta
and Palembang, Indonesia. The Asiad is the second largest multi-sport
event after the Olympics with teams from 44 countries participating and
three million fans expected to attend. Moovit is a free public transit
app available on Android, iOS and the web with more than 200 million
users in over 2,500 cities in 82 countries.
The Asiad Steering Committee chose Moovit as its official mobility app
because Moovit has the most complete, up-to-date coverage of all modes
of transit and lines in Jakarta & Palembang than any other provider.

send local citizens and tourists alike notifications of these changes.
Also, Moovit’s app is fully localized in 44 languages, including
Indonesian, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Japanese, Thai, Bahai

attractions have partnered with Moovit worldwide to help their patrons
and fans use public transit.
“We commend the Asiad Steering Committee for working with the best
