We are proud to announce the official launch of Jelbi — the largest MaaS solution in the world. This is the result of a joint partnership between Trafi and Berlin’s public transport authority BVG. Jelbi offers a Mobility as a Service platform that deeply integrates all types of transportation in the city. Today, we announce the end of the beta phase and brand new additions to the Jelbi family.
As of today, Jelbi will cover all different types of transportation in Berlin, making it the largest Mobility as a Service (MaaS) in the world. It is the first mobility service to combine such a large amount of deeply integrated transportation providers. Initially, it will include twelve types of transport, representing each possible way of moving around the city — as well as walking. Using Jelbi, you will find buses, trams, trains, ferries, the metro, and shared mobility options such as bikes, e-kick scooters, e-scooters, shuttles, car-sharing, and taxis. All at the click of a button.
Fresh for the launch, ViaVan’s BerlKönig shuttles and Tier’s e-kick scooters will join the Jelbi family, with Taxi Berlin following in a few weeks. They complement the already existing partners in form of Emmy, Miles Mobility, Nextbike, Deutsche Bahn (S-Bahn) and the full public transportation network of BVG.
The connected integrated mobility network combined with real-time routing makes it easy to plan, pick and pay for your journey. You don’t even need to sign up with any additional providers. Instead, you are shown the complete set of prices and ETAs transparently, and you can keep all your tickets in one place.
“Together with BVG, we are happy to launch the largest MaaS solution in the world: Jelbi. Ensuring both depth and width, Trafi’s whitelabel solution combines a high number of integrated transport providers with a truly convenient customer-experience. Berlin is a great first step to showcase what technology can do for transportation, but we are not stopping there. Later this year, we are adding even more cities and countries to our portfolio. We provide software that helps urban areas to manage and improve holistic mobility networks — by themselves, for their citizens and in real-time”, said Martynas Gudonavičius, CEO & Co-Founder at Trafi.
