What Is zophop ?
zophop is your one-stop app for faster, smarter and cheaper travel. You can search for all public transport modes – bus, train, metro, monorail, and available cab services in your city ,and uses a simple interface for ease of use.
The “Check-In” feature gives you a live location and time of your bus or train. You can also see the real-time movement on a map under Live Trips in the Near You section.
Once you “Check-In” you also get an estimated time of arrival(ETA) to your destination, next stop updates with voice alerts. You can also share this with your friends and family , so no more “Are you here yet ?”.
