London travellers - Thanks to a new partnership with Transport for London, starting today you can see how crowded your underground station is, based on TfL’s real-time stops’ crowdedness level data. You can also help other passengers know how crowded the stop, station or route is by self reporting, helping everyone to feel safe for those on essential travel.
In the Station View screen, you will now be able to see how crowded your underground station is, based on TfL data. The reporting covers all tube stations apart from Kensington Olympia, Heathrow Terminal 5 and Willesden Junction. Please note that Monument data is categorised the same as Bank station for the purposes of crowding.
Four crowdedness levels will be displayed:
- Not crowded
- A little crowded
- Crowded (will be displayed in red)
- Very Crowded (will be displayed in red)
You can also help other riders know how crowded the underground station is by easily reporting crowdedness levels by yourself directly inside the Moovit app:
Report crowdedness status:
On the Quick Actions Bar, tap on the “Report” icon at the bottom of the screen, tap on “Report”, and choose the relevant status for the stop or station. This will then be displayed to all users following your report, helping to maintain our crowding level accuracy for all users.
Confirm User Reported crowdedness status:
If the crowdedness level displayed is correct, confirm that it is still relevant by tapping on the checkmark sign. When that happens, the timestamp will be updated to “Now”, and your report will be immediately reflected to all users.
Update crowdedness status:
If the crowdedness level displayed is not relevant anymore, click “X” and then select the updated status. Once you confirm or update the status, your report will be immediately reflected to all users.
