Luna is a map app designed to improve safety for people travelling in the city at night. It uses many different metrics to determine the safest route, including:

  • Street lights – never walk down an unlit road again
  • Population trends – for safety in numbers
  • Crime rates – avoid hotspots around your city
  • Crowdsourced information – people working together to stay safe

It also offers the following features:

  • Personal Lifeguard – notifying a designated contact in case of emergencies
  • Hero Mode – if users see anything troubling they can report it, and Luna will find them a different route and help others around it too
  • Find Food Enroute – finding safe restaurants
  • Book a Taxi – booking the most trusted taxis
