Die Corona-Pandemie hat sich auf fast alle Bereiche des öffentlichen und privaten Lebens ausgewirkt. Auch mit Blick auf die Mobilität hat die Krise für noch nie da gewesene Verhältnisse gesorgt und Entwicklungen beschleunigt, die sich sonst wahrscheinlich erst in einigen Jahren realisiert hätten. Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) kann eine Lösung für Mobilitätsanbieter sein, um mit den Folgen der Pandemie umzugehen.
Karlsruhe, 3 May 2021 – The existing KVV.mobil app of the transport association Karlsruher Verkehrsverbund (KVV) will run on Mobimeo's Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform following a relaunch at the start of May 2021. With the KVV.mobil app, KVV offers its passengers a complete range of mobility options across its network area from a single source. The app enables sustainable mobility in Karlsruhe by linking public transport, the on-demand ridesharing service MyShuttle and sharing offers from TIER, Voi and Nextbike to bring users to their destination quickly and easily – without needing their own car.

The MaaS plat­form devel­oped by Mobimeo pro­vides intu­itive access to all avail­able mobil­i­ty options, from search­ing to book­ing and pay­ment. With the appli­ca­tion pro­gram­ming inter­face (API) it has devel­oped, ioki now enables the direct book­ing and han­dling of on-demand jour­neys to be deeply inte­grat­ed in a MaaS app for the first time. The imple­men­ta­tion of this tech­ni­cal solu­tion marks the first coop­er­a­tion on a joint project between these two Deutsche Bahn sub­sidiaries. Users of the KVV.mobil app can now also use it to book MyShut­tle vehicles.
Nev­er­the­less, the pre­vi­ous­ly released ioki kvv.easy app will still be avail­able to customers.

Heike Löf­fler, Chief Com­mer­cial Offi­cer (CCO) of Mobimeo: “The update to the KVV.mobil app is a tru­ly spe­cial occa­sion for us for two rea­sons: When we acquired the B2B/B2G busi­ness of moov­el last autumn, we got the oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­vince KVV of the capa­bil­i­ties of Mobimeo’s MaaS plat­form. And the fact that the inte­gra­tion of MyShut­tle has giv­en us the chance to work togeth­er with our col­leagues from ioki with­in one app is tes­ta­ment to the strength of our inte­grat­ed offering.”

Dr. Michael Bar­il­lère-Scholz, CEO of ioki: “By offer­ing to upgrade apps with this API, we are open­ing up our ioki plat­form to all trans­port providers with deeply inte­grat­ed mobil­i­ty-as-a-ser­vice solu­tions. We can now also dis­play our on-demand book­ings with­in com­pre­hen­sive mobil­i­ty-as-a-ser­vice apps, thus offer­ing even greater val­ue to users. We are delight­ed to deploy this inter­face for the first time with our DB sis­ter com­pa­ny Mobimeo as part of our joint project with KVV.”

Besides the deep inte­gra­tion of the elec­tric on-demand rideshar­ing ser­vice MyShut­tle, users ben­e­fit from addi­tion­al shar­ing options. The KVV.mobil app also offers sim­ple and con­tact­less pur­chas­ing of pub­lic trans­port tick­ets, based on the select­ed route or direct­ly in the tick­et shop.

About ioki
ioki devel­ops smart mobil­i­ty solu­tions for the future. Whether for trans­port com­pa­nies, local author­i­ties or busi­ness­es, whether in rur­al areas or in the city: as an expert for mobil­i­ty analy­ses, the Deutsche Bahn sub­sidiary iden­ti­fies needs and pro­vides data-based advice for the plan­ning of new ser­vices. With the help of its intel­li­gent plat­form, the DB busi­ness unit, as a tech­nol­o­gy part­ner, also enables flex­i­ble on-demand mobil­i­ty that is inte­grat­ed into pub­lic trans­port, thus strength­en­ing pub­lic trans­port in the long term. ioki sup­ports its cus­tomers from A to Z: from iden­ti­fy­ing mean­ing­ful areas of use to the devel­op­ment of a user-friend­ly app to the actu­al imple­men­ta­tion on the road. In this way, mobil­i­ty becomes acces­si­ble for every­one, any­time and any­where – sus­tain­able, acces­si­ble and demand-responsive.

About Mobimeo
Mobimeo GmbH (Mobimeo) devel­ops a Mobil­i­ty-as-a-Ser­vice (MaaS) plat­form for the mobil­i­ty of tomor­row. As a part­ner of trans­port com­pa­nies, trans­port asso­ci­a­tions and oth­er mobil­i­ty providers, Mobimeo con­nects exist­ing pub­lic trans­port sys­tems, shar­ing and on-demand options. For mobil­i­ty providers, Mobimeo offers high-per­for­mance tech­ni­cal prod­ucts: apps built on Mobimeo’s plat­form impress with their ele­gant design, their intu­itive route search, book­ing and pay­ment func­tions and con­tin­u­ous jour­ney progress infor­ma­tion. They offer users mul­ti­modal, per­son­alised and event-dri­ven sug­ges­tions to find the best pos­si­ble route to their des­ti­na­tion. The result is a relaxed and enjoy­able trav­el expe­ri­ence for mil­lions of pub­lic trans­port users – with­out depen­dence on pri­vate cars.

The com­pa­ny was found­ed by Deutsche Bahn AG in 2018. In 2020 Mobimeo acquired a part of moov­el Group GmbH (moov­el) that devel­ops mobil­i­ty plat­forms for munic­i­pal­i­ties and trans­port asso­ci­a­tions (B2B/B2G soft­ware solu­tions). Mobimeo has thus become one of Europe’s largest plat­form devel­op­ers for Mobil­i­ty-as-a-Ser­vice appli­ca­tions (MaaS). Togeth­er with the exist­ing share­hold­ers of moov­el – BMW Group and Daim­ler Mobil­i­ty AG – Deutsche Bahn is com­bin­ing resources to devel­op region­al MaaS plat­forms at Mobimeo.
