Help us make travel at night safer & easier in Pittsburgh!

November 19, 2018

    Dear Friends of Moovit,

    At the beginning of October, Moovit joined a team of people who hadn’t known each much other longer than 24 hours to submit a pilot proposal to Ford’s Pittsburgh City of Tomorrow Challenge. Of 129 proposals submitted, Safe Shift was chosen to be a semi-finalist alongside 13 others. The pilot, Safe Shift, quickly gained support from University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Port Authority of Allegheny County, attracted attention of the mayor’s office, and sparked interest in many more local organizations.

    We need your feedback & support!

    ….We promise it will only take a minute…

    Please check out the Safe Shift proposal and if you think it’s a good idea:

    • comment at the bottom of the page,
    • “applaud” it,
    • and share it via your social media channels to show the judges this is a winning concept!

    Look for these buttons at the bottom of the proposal!

    More about Safe Shift

    Safe Shift will help third shift/overnight workers get to and from work safely, conveniently, and in good spirits to the benefit of the employee,employer, and the surrounding community.

    The Safe Shift model promotes safety, inclusivity, and sustainability in an area of the workforce that is traditionally underserved by corporate interest and municipal resources. By coupling unused shuttles with Moovit’s cutting-edge MaaS technology to meet the mobility needs of employees, Safe Shift creates a smart transit ecosystem that both employers and employees can rely on.

    Additionally, Moovit’s multi-modal app, connects its users with the greater Port Authority transportation system. This has the added effect of promoting and enabling use of public transportation and does not detract anything from the existing transit system.

    You can find the published proposal here.

    The team is comprised of:
