A new frontier for Whiz and how we get schedules

Today, we’re launching in many new locations throughout the UK and Europe, including:

Whiz will no longer show personalized advertising.

Since we started in 2013, we’ve continually evolved — the app has grown from a simple bus-tracker for three cities in the UK to a worldwide transit navigator spanning over 150 cities. The way we monetize the app has evolved as well, from selling apps up-front, then making the app free and showing advertising, to our current subscription model.

It’s inconvenient when your favorite transit app goes away, but Whiz is here to stay, and we’d like to tell you you why you should travel with us.

Public transport, your way.

Whiz provides everything you’ve come to expect on your daily commute — live departure times, journey planning, service alerts and several features you won’t find anywhere else. Our focus has been on giving you the freedom to get the information you need any way you want.

With the novel coronavirus sweeping the globe, many transport networks are doing everything they can to fight the virus — from increased station and vehicle cleaning to reducing services. If you need to travel to the supermarket or to work (and many do, including frontline emergency workers) we want to help.
