Public transport app encourages commuters to stay Pollution Aware as they travel

MOOVIT, the world's #1 transport app, has added a timely new feature for commuters in the UK to be pollution aware during their travels. When planning journeys on public transport, Moovit users can now check the levels of air pollution on their route in the app, thanks to a partnership with Clean Space by Drayson Technologies.

In addition to accessing air pollution information for their chosen public transport route, Moovit users can also request to be equipped with Clean Space Tags, personal air pollution smart sensors designed by Drayson Technologies, in order to collect hyper local air pollution data as they travel in and around their Cities.

The Moovit community members equipped with Clean Space Tags will crowd source air pollution data wherever they are, helping to build a global map of air pollution. Members can register for their Clean Space Tags online.

The news comes as the UK is issued with an official warning by the EU regarding rising pollution levels that saw nitrogen dioxide limits repeatedly exceeded in 16 areas including London, Birmingham, Leeds, and Glasgow. An additional damning survey undertaken by Surrey University demonstrated public transport users are exposed to a much higher level of pollution than car drivers. Tube users are in fact are exposed to eight times more pollution levels than those driving to work.

Moovit Vice President of Product Yovav Meydad, said:- "It is essential that commuters have easy access to information that plays a direct part in their overall health and wellbeing. Clean Space is an incredibly smart network that allows Moovit users to be pollution aware by tracking the pollution levels along their journey anywhere in the UK. The community is also able to contribute to this huge network, mapping air pollution levels across the country, and by carrying a Clean Space smart sensor they are effectively providing a constant data source to help us track where pollutions levels are high."

Lord Paul Drayson, Chairman and CEO, Drayson Technologies, said:- "Drayson Technologies and Moovit are 2 forward thinking organisations that recognise how technology can improve our lives. With this partnership, we're combining two areas of innovative technology, crowd sourced journey planning data and an Internet of Things sensor network, to build information for the benefit of the wider public. Air pollution is a global issue but through the provision of accurate data, we can help improve air quality across the globe."
