Ride-sharing company Uber is set to expand its collaboration—first announced in February— with Israel-based public transit app developer Moovit App Global Ltd., the latter said Wednesday. The original partnership saw Uber leverage Moovit’s application programming interface to provide users in London and four other cities with public transportation information, so that riders can access real-time transit data and route planning in the Uber app. As part of the expanded partnership, Uber is set to expand its service to 15 additional cities globally, including Paris and San Fransisco.

 

Moovit also announced that ride-sharing company Lyft is set to implement a similar service in New York.

 

Founded in 2012 and based in central Israel, Moovit develops and offers a free mobile navigation app providing real-time public transit information in 3,000 cities and 92 countries. Its app has over 500 million users, adding to the company’s database of over 7,000 public transportation operators, according to the company’s statement.
