Briefly: Moovit debuts Lyft integration, AmEx payment through Uber
Transit-planning app, Moovit, has <a href=""http://thenextweb.com/apps/2014/06/09/crowd-powered-transit-app-moovit-updates-lyft-integration-select-cities/?utm_source=social&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=pr ofeed>announced</a> its latest update, which integrates a pilot for carpooling service Lyft. Moovit provides information from transit agencies as well as crowd-sourced data from passengers travelling with the app active. Available for both its iOS and Android apps, Moovit now includes the ability to request a Lyft pick-up while planning a trip.<br><br />
<br />
Lyft integration is accessible to all users in cities Lyft currently serves, and Moovit can be downloaded through <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/311475==https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tranzmate/id498477945?ls=1&mt=8" rel='nofollow'>iTunes</a> and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/311476==https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tranzmate&feature=search_result&hl= en" rel='nofollow'>Google Play</a> for free.<br />

<strong>AmEx card members now able to pay for Uber rides with rewards points</strong><br />
<br />
Cab hailing app Uber has <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/311477==http://techcrunch.com/2014/06/09/amex-uber/?ncid=rss&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&ut m_campaign=Feed%3A+Techcrunch+%28TechCrunch%29" rel='nofollow'>announced</a> AmEx integration into its iOS version, allowing users to pay for fares with accumulated AmEx reward points. Users in the US who are signed up for the Membership Rewards program can earn double the points using their AmEx card to pay for the ride, or use their points for Uber rides - however, rewards points must cover the entire fare to choose this option. This selection can be chosen as an in-app toggle option. Uber for iOS can be download through iTunes.<br />
