This free app, called Moovit, allows you to track your buses in real-time, plan trips, and feedback on how crowded buses and trains are as well as the mood of your driver. It works on iPhone, Android, and Windows and is setup for the Wellington area. It is the Waze of Public Transport.
- Shows you where buses are in real-time, by logging on to them.
- Allows you to enter information such as congestion, driver demeanor, cleanliness, wheelchair access, air conditioning, and others.
- Has all the current timetables included.
- Trip planner.
- Gamified (you get points for using it).
- Social media connected.

- Push notifications from your bus and train service.

The Hack Miramar team are testing it, but we thought you should too. It takes you a minute to download and setup. Make sure you register so you can compete on the local leader boards. Search for Moovit in your App store.
