Inter Milan ties up with Moovit transport app
Serie A Italian soccer club Inter Milan has announced a partnership with mobile public transportation app Moovit in an effort to encourage more fans to take public transit to games. Moovit’s mobile app will provide fans with real-time public transportation directions for navigating to and from Inter Milan’s home and away matches.
Fans using the app will be able to see estimated times of arrival and be alerted to possible diversions or changes when riding public transit. The app also includes guidance on how to access specific entrances within stadiums via public transportation, as well as routes detailing a user’s way home. Moovit is available in 44 different languages, which was a major draw to Inter given Milan is a major tourist-destination city.
For every game in the season, Inter fans can easily reach the stadium without using their car by using Moovit’s trip plan, real-time arrivals and live directions. The collaboration will alleviate any worries that fans have about arriving or leaving a game, and allow them to travel with greater ease and convenience using Moovit’s accurate and reliable transit information.
“This agreement with Moovit, the world’s number one public transport app, will help our fans get around cities and allow them to arrive at all the stadiums Inter are playing at, whether in Italy or Europe,” said Alessandro Antonello, Inter Milan’s CEO, in a press release. “Users will then be able to identify the best route to get to the Meazza, the Inter Store and all the stadiums hosting the Nerazzurri [Inter Milan] in a quick and sustainable way, with public transport and sharing available to them.”
Moovit’s mobile app is free to download on both Android and iOS devices. The app has over 330 million users, with maps to more than 200 cities in Italy and over 2,700 cities globally, according to Inter’s press release.
“Inter Milan is the first team in Milan to have chosen to work with Moovit for its mobility needs. This is a team that has the highest average number of spectators in the current championship, and the only Italian team within the top ten European teams in terms of game attendance between August and December 2018,” said Moovit’s Director of Partnerships Samuel Sed Piazza, in another press release.
“This collaboration marks a solid commitment on Inter’s part to support sustainable mobility and for Moovit, represents an important recognition of the work that we’re doing all over the world to facilitate and promote the use of alternative transit options,” he added.
