Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, and Vilnius – Today Trafi is expanding its partner program by signing partnership agreements with nextbike (bike sharing), Donkey Republic (bike rental), and Dott (e-scooter sharing). Trafi’s program already had European micromobility leaders like Tier and Voi.
All four companies agreed that the time has come to rethink transportation priorities and yield the public space back to more sustainable mobility modes. By committing to integrate into current and upcoming Mobility as a Service rollouts powered by Trafi, mobility service providers will enhance existing urban mobility networks. As a result, cities and their residents will benefit from completely integrated holistic mobility platforms that act as a much more flexible alternative to owning a car.
“As a European bike-sharing leader, for the past 16 years we have been putting people onto bikes and pioneering green, climate-friendly shared mobility,” says Leonhard von Harrach, CEO of Nextbike GmbH. “In order to change cities for the better, we now need integrated mobility concepts that will encourage more people to use the full spectrum of shared mobility. Trafi is a pioneer in city-led MaaS and we are super excited to join the partner squad to provide cities with a more comprehensive MaaS offering.”
“We believe that in the future riders will find all transport options in one place, which will enable many more of them to leave their cars behind,” says Erdem Ovacik, CEO of Donkey Republic. “Donkey believes that cities need to be in control of their mobility services, as well as the market, which also would include the aggregation of mobility services. In that regard, Trafi provides a valuable option for cities to aggregate all mobility services.”
Due to this collaboration cities are now able to strengthen and expand the public transport network and provide more mobility options to their residents in no time. City residents will be able to find, book, and pay for nextbike, Donkey Republic, and Dott services in any city that has a one-stop-shop MaaS app powered by Trafi.
“We are very excited to add nextbike, Dott, and Donkey Republic to our partner library and make them part of our Mobility as a Service movement,” says Christof Schminke, Managing Director Commercial at Trafi. “We are striving to make it as easy as possible for cities to launch MaaS. A strong and growing squad of pre-integrated mobility partners is a powerful asset. This puts Trafi in a position to launch full MaaS solutions in just a few months.”
For mobility service providers, this partnership opens up new market opportunities, a much faster growth, and quicker adoption of their services.
