As featured by Apple and Gizmodo: 1 public transport app, wherever you go! • 160+ cities, 1 app Gone are the days of needing a different public transport app for any city you visit. Embark works in in over 15 countries! • Live, real-time tracking Tap on any stop or station to see the services arriving next, including live times - so you know when that next bus is actually arriving instead of just when it's supposed to. • One-tap directions to your favourite places Add and save your favourite destinations, so you can quickly get step-by-step directions to them, from wherever you are. • Uber integration Search for a destination or tap on one of your favourites to see Uber as an option beneath public transport ones - we give you a fare estimate as well. Just tap to book! • Live times on your Apple Watch Now all you need to do is glance at your wrist to see when your next bus, train, tram or ferry is arriving! • A tailored digest to keep you entertained Time will fly while on your trip. Embark serves up a feed of the web’s most popular content in a personalised feed that you can save or share • Better information, stuff that matters Type in a destination and Embark will show you the best options to get there, with important details like carbon emissions and the calories you'll burn. • Next-gen interaction with screens Like magic, you'll very soon be able to interact with screens at stops and stations, just by being near them. Vote on that poll, download that trailer, or like that jacket for later! • More value just for you, near you Embark understands your frequented routes, so keep an eye on the map for freebies and other offers at places you love! Get on board!

@jamieskella Featured by Apple but Apple bought a company called Embark that did this a few years ago?

@brackin @jamieskella The Embark that Apple bought did only 1/3 of what our Embark does. The original Embark is now the transit component of Apple Maps.

Wondering how this compares to Citymapper? Also, your phone number field is an email type :)

@craftbyte hey Anže, Embark works in 100s of cities globally, not just a few. We'll fix up that field!

Seems to work well - I like how it shows your CO2 impact, and how many calories you'll use up!

Great app ! How did you do to aggregate all this data from that much countries and cities ? It should be a really huge amount of work ! Really what we need since a long time, better than 1 app for every city ! Just wondering about the entertainment part :)
