Nir Erez sees the future of urban mobility and in it, data is the determinant.
As Co-founder and CEO of Moovit, a leading Mobility as a Service (MaaS) provider and the world’s #1 urban mobility app, Nir Erez believes data companies will become the operating system – the brains and heart – of smart cities. Moovit, he says, is poised to be the leader. Indeed, Moovit is an early pioneer of MaaS, with its free transit app that currently has 500 million users and predicted to surge to one billion by 2021. Moovit owns and operates the world’s largest repository of urban mobility data, adding more than four billion anonymized data points a day from its users. Moovit’s community of 550,000 local editors who contribute hyper-local data to the app make Moovit the Wikipedia of Transit.
