When millions of people convene this weekend for the Women’s March in New York and all over the country, there’s bound to be uncertainty about how to get around the city. Transit systems on weekend schedules will be put to the test.
The march is meeting at the north west corner of 72nd & Columbus at 10:45 am, which starts at 72nd & Central Park West. The rally starts at 11:30 at Central Park West & 61st/62nd street. The full block in front of the stage (61st to 62nd on Central Park West) will be reserved for those with disabilities. The march starts around 12:30EST and will go past Columbus Circle, East on 59th Street, and South on 6th Avenue with exits at 45th/44th/43rd streets. 750,000, are expected to March
Moovit is here to help. Moovit the world’s #1 transit app, is free to download on iOS, Android and the Web, and helps anyone who rides mass transit get around easier and with more convenience. Moovit makes real-time transit changes directly to its app, especially for big events like the Women’s March 2018, to provide the best route regardless of changes to transit service, and helps reduce transit chaos caused by such events.
Moovit is a simple solution to give riders the smoothest journey and the best data available, including real-time transit arrivals and departures, as well as a step-by-step GPS-like guide, perfect for folks who rarely ride transit or out-of-towners.
Moovit users are able to:
Easily navigate to/from entry/exit points
Search “Women’s March,” to locate route/events
Identify the route by the Women’s March 2018 logos on the map
Plan trips to/from the event locations
In New York City, the entrance and exit points to the March route are also marked in addition to the start and finish points. Moovit has also marked accessible entry points and all all stops that are out of service during the March have been taken off the system to ensure the most accurate trip plans without any confusion.
