Knowing when your line is arriving can save you precious time and a lot of hassle. Now, Moovit is making it easier for you to know how reliable the ETAs for your lines are, by showing them in different colors. These colors represent the level of certainty we have for their accuracy.
Green-Yellow-Red: ETAs Updated Live
For example, when the arrival time is shown in green - it's accurate, as the GPS signal we’re getting from the line is strong and frequent.
If we receive a less frequent GPS signal from your line, we’ll show you the arrival time in yellow, because this makes it fairly accurate.
A red arrival time means the GPS signals we’re receiving are too few and far between, so it may not be accurate.
When the arrival time is red with an exclamation mark icon, the line has deviated from its route. This means we’re not certain when - or if - your line will arrive at your stop.
Black: No Live Arrival Times
In cases where the arrival time is black - we have no live information for this line at all. This means we’re basing the time you see on one of these:
- The scheduled time: If the schedule says your train should arrive at 11:46 and it’s 11:32, we’ll show you 14 min.
- We’ve calculated the estimated arrival time, based on this line’s previous arrival times. So if we know this line is usually 15 minutes late or 7 minutes early - that’s the time we’ll reflect to you.
Either way, we’ll always let you know which of these options applies for your line.
Definitive Arrival Times
When the ETA is more than an hour from now, you’ll see it as a definitive time (e.g 7:48), making it easier for you to understand exactly when it’s due.
