The application now includes new functionalities developed during the most difficult months of the pandemic so that fans will be able to receive real-time information on public transport occupancy levels, which will allow them to avoid crowds and feel safer when traveling by subway or bus. In this sense, Moovit offers three levels of occupancy: “available seats”, “standing only” and “very full”. This information will appear both in the details of the route and in the general information of stops, lines and favorites of the app.

In addition, Betic fans will be able to receive alerts and notifications in the event of any situation arising from a health emergency or serious incidence in urban and metropolitan mobility.

Beyond public transport, football team fans will be able to access the different micromobility options available in Seville through the app, such as electric scooters or shared use bicycles. And it is that beyond avoiding large crowds, this collaboration seeks to reduce CO2 emissions that occur during trips to football.

For Rafael Muela, manager of the Real Betis Balompié Foundation, ” Sustainable mobility is one of Forever Green’s areas of action in which we have been working since the beginning of the sustainability platform. Having as an ally a company as committed as Moovit will help us so that our sporting events have a lesser impact on the environment, encouraging our fans to access the Benito Villamarín Stadium in a sustainable way. ”

For its part, Manuel Molés, Head of partnerships for Moovit in Europa states that “It is very gratifying to see the commitment to sustainable mobility that the Forever Green initiative represents. That a club like Real Betis Balompié is firmly committed to improving fan travel and, at the same time, reducing its carbon footprint, is a milestone in the world of sport that we hope will serve as a reference for many other teams. “
