Moovit, if you haven't used it before, gives you info on buses, trains and other modes of public transportation so you can plan the best route possible. It lumped in Uber with other modes of transpo in New York, Los Angeles, Rome and London back in 2015. But now the company has expanded the ride-sharing service's integration to encompass a total of 131 cities in 22 countries. So long as you're in one of those cities, you'll be able to request an Uber from within Moovit, say, if buses or trains won't get you to your destination on time.

Moovit CEO Nir Erez said in a statement:

"Our goal is to provide our users with the best possible experience on public transport, but there are times when it's quicker for users to get around via car. By now offering the option to order an Uber for all or part of a journey, we're able to give our users even more freedom in deciding how they want to get from point A to point B."

The 22 countries included in the rollout are: US, UK, Italy, Spain, France, Turkey, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Norway, Finland, Netherlands, Uruguay, Portugal, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Bulgaria and Greece. If you live in one of those countries and can't see the option yet, don't worry: you'll get it sometime over the next few weeks.
