Trafi reinforces its strategy with a partnership with nextbike, Dott, and Donkey Republic

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.

yumuv

Trafi connects three Swiss cities within a single app to launch the first regional Mobility as a Service (MaaS)

ZURICH, BASEL, BERN, VILNIUS – Today, Trafi, the European leader for MaaS platforms, in collaboration with Verkehrsbetriebe Zürich, Basler Verkehrs-Betriebe BVB, Bernmobil, and SBB CFF FFS, is launching the first regional and multi-city MaaS app. It is called “​yumuv”.

  • Mobility services and transportation modes in Zurich, Bern, and Basel will now be connected into one single centralized app. The Yumuv app is already available in the city of Zurich, and launches in Bern and Basel will follow shortly.
  • The Yumuv app by Trafi now makes it possible for people of Switzerland to use all kinds of mobility modes seamlessly in one place – from itineraries to ticketing and subscription packages.
  • On top of the public transportation offer, the app will also integrate new mobility companies such as the bike-sharing app BOND, and e-scooter companies Voi and Tier. Trafi and the cities are committed to integrating additional mobility services and providers, such as taxis, and car-sharing operators.
  • The new single-payment model (one credit card for all apps) will be available for a period of one year, seeking insights into how users move around the city.

Our new single payment model for Yumuv represents a new standard in MaaS technology. It allows users to split their subscription allowance among different operators. Such a mechanism will ensure a cheaper and smoother exploration of new mobility options for travelers.

Martynas Gudonavičius, Trafi CEO & Co-Founder

Trafi accelerates global MaaS development with a new fundraise

Trafi accelerates global MaaS development with a new fundraise

VILNIUS – Leader in Mobility as a Service, Trafi announces a fundraise with new investors Sumitomo Corporation and Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance and follow-on from EBRD and Octopus Investments. The investment will accelerate Trafi’s strategy to bring innovative mobility solutions to cities worldwide, and to Asia in particular.

Sumitomo Corporation and Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance are the lead investors in Trafi’s recent round, opening the next company phase: more MaaS solution access to more people.

“We are proud to see the cutting edge technology that Trafi has deployed in major cities,” said Shingo Hosotani, General Manager of Business Development at Sumitomo Corporation Europe. “We intend to be the global leader in optimizing mobility of people and goods. Thus we had no second thoughts when we decided to rely on Trafi’s expertise. We now wish to help people anywhere to adopt sustainable and next-generation mobility services.”

In 2019, Trafi launched Jelbi, the world’s most comprehensive MaaS in Berlin, showing that city-led mobility solutions can offer all modes of transportation to Berliners in a single place for a more sustainable, equitable, and effective urban mobility. Following the success in Germany, Czech Republic, and Lithuania, Trafi will soon launch its MaaS platform in collaboration with SBB — the Swiss national railway company, and then intends to conquer more European and international capitals for 2021.

“The broad business perspective is the reason why we are so eager to partner up with Trafi,” says Hisashige Doisaki, General Manager at Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance. “The company does have a real success story of MaaS — from cities in Europe to trendsetting multinational technology companies, like Google, Lyft, and Gojek. We believe that by working closer together, we can help cities make this transition from personal cars into a safer, more equitable, and sustainable future of mobility.”

“Our partnership with Sumitomo Corporation and Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance enables us at Trafi not only to accelerate the development of the technology that we already know, but also to open up our own MaaS platform to a much broader spectrum of urban mobility initiatives, projects, and experiments. No matter the size or scale,” says Martynas Gudonavičius, CEO of Trafi.

The company believes that cities have been suffering enough from car centricity, and the Covid-19 gave local authorities the final proof that public investment into transportation and urban mobility is needed. With this new financial round and the Japanese expertise, Trafi bets on a more sustainable and easier to access urban mobility solutions for the future of the cities.

MVG and Trafi to launch Mobility as a Service solution in Munich

  • Today, MVG, the main public transport company in Munich, announced the upcoming launch of a Mobility-as-a-Service solution in Q1 2021.
  • Using the multimodal application, users in Munich will be able to access a wide range of mobility modes in one place.
  • The MaaS solution is a white label product powered by Trafi’s technology and branded by the MVG.
  • The app will be released in the course of the year and will be available on both iOS and Android.
  • Private mobility service providers are now invited to join the MaaS solution in a call for action.

MUNICH — Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft (MVG), the main public transport company in Munich, has chosen Trafi, the technology platform, to release a city-owned Mobility as a Service solution. The application will be available to users in the course of the year and will include the full public transportation network as well as private providers, thus connecting traditional and new mobility.

After initiating the expansion and the modernization of its public transportation fleets, the MVG has been equally proactive in launching its own bike-sharing and ride pooling services. The Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft is also behind the M-Login, which allows all Munich inhabitants and visitors alike to use various digital services around the Bavarian capital with one account only. As a next logical step, the MVG is now launching its own Mobility-as-a-Service solution.

With only one app to download for their various mobility needs, the inhabitants of Munich will be able to conveniently book their preferred modes — and discover new ways to get around their beloved city, driving the switch from private to shared mobility.

In addition to the traditional public transit offer, all mobility providers of the city can be integrated. The potential future partners were formally invited to an information session organized by the MVG to learn all about the plan to launch MaaS in the city. Participants included Bird, BOND Mobility, Circ, CleverShuttle, Dott, emmy, IsarFunk, Taxi Zentrale, mtz (münchner taxi zentrum), SHARE NOW, Sixt, STATTAUTO München, Taxi München eG, TIER Mobility, and VOI.

“We network the various providers under one roof in order to sensibly supplement public transport as the backbone of mobility, and to make sharing vehicles of all sizes even better and easier,” says Mayor Dieter Reiter.

“Sharing is part of our DNA as a public transport operator. The MVG’s current goal is to also cover the first and last mile by cooperating with new partners and offers. Our customers want to reach their destination from and to their front door, and not just from stop to stop,” says Ingo Wortmann, Chairman of the Management Board at MVG. 

“We want to create more mobility in Munich, but also less car traffic,” adds Sinaida Cordes, Head of Innovation Projects at MVG. “We are delighted to play a pioneering role in driving this change.”

“This new partnership between Trafi and MVG is an encouraging signal that an increasing number of cities want to connect their whole mobility networks to create a seamless experience for their users. After launching the largest MaaS solution in the world in Berlin, we are thrilled to join forces with Munich in our quest to create cities where moving is easy,” says Christof Schminke, Managing Director Commercial at Trafi.

Trafi & BVG’s all-in-one mobility app Jelbi goes live in Berlin

  • Today Trafi, the technology platform for mobility, and BVG, the main public transport agency in Berlin, are launching a new multimodal app called Jelbi, connecting all types of mobility in the city.
  • Berliners will now be able to access a pilot version where different types of transportation are accessible in one place – from planning your route to purchasing your ticket.
  • The pilot phase includes a handful of private transport operators and the whole public transport system, making Jelbi the most deeply integrated mobility network in the world.
  • The first private operators to be included in Jelbi are Nextbike (bike sharing), Emmy (e-scooter sharing), and Miles (car-sharing). Trafi and BVG will continuously integrate more mobility offers, with around 25 private transport providers interested in joining the service.
  • The application is a white label solution powered by Trafi’s technology and branded by BVG.

BERLIN – Trafi, the technology platform for mobility solutions, and Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG), the main public transport company in Berlin, are today launching a pilot version of Jelbi, the first mobility app to connect all different types of transport in the city. The mobility service is a one-stop-shop for people traveling in Berlin, making it easy to plan and purchase all your trips in the same place. Users can say goodbye to app-jumping, difficulties finding a convenient route, and tiresome registration processes. With Jelbi, you only need to register once to access the full range of mobility in Berlin. Planning, booking, and buying your trip is all part of the app, and you don’t have to sign up with any additional companies. Instead, we keep all your trips and tickets in one place.

Jelbi is the first mobility service in the world with so many deeply integrated transportation providers, and it will be available on both iOS and Android. The pilot phase is starting today, on the 11th of June 2019, and already offers people the opportunity to use the entire public transit system as well as Nextbike (bike sharing), Emmy (e-scooter sharing), and Miles (car sharing) seamlessly within Jelbi.

Later this summer follows BerlKönig (ride-sharing shuttles), a joint effort from BVG and ViaVan. Shortly thereafter Taxi Berlin should be fully integrated and after the approval of e-kick scooters, Tier will be next in line. In the future, other mobility modes will be added gradually and the list is long – around 25 transport providers have already expressed their interest in joining Jelbi.

“Jelbi is the largest partnership between a public company like BVG, and a private partner like Trafi, that we have seen across the globe. We are incredibly proud to launch Jelbi in record time, bringing innovative technology to the streets of Berlin and to the hands of every Berliner. Our collaboration is showing how the future of mobility can become a reality in a matter of months, with a strong local network partner and a technology speedboat to pave the way. Kicking off the pilot with a few absolutely integral transport providers, we are so excited for everyone to start using Jelbi”, says Christof Schminke, Managing Director Berlin at Trafi.

“We invite everyone who wants to experience the future of mobility to join us when we open the pilot version of Jelbi for everyone to use today. As the mobility landscape is changing faster than ever before, we realize that the app will never be completely ready and fully developed – it is and will be an adaptable service for the citizens of Berlin. As we are working on the integration of further partners, we are looking forward to getting feedback from our users. Only then can Jelbi become the app that moves us all over Berlin”, says Dr. Henrik Haenecke, CFO and CDO at BVG.

Trafi’s ready-to-use technology makes connecting various types of transportation modes effortless. Offering the world’s most advanced mobility software, we make it possible for people, transport operators, and cities to connect on one platform.

Therefore, I am very much looking forward to introducing Ms. Katrin Göring-Eckardt to our vision of making integrated mobility services the dominant form of city transportation, and our mission to make mobility services the first choice worldwide”, says Martynas Gudonavičius, Co-Founder and CEO of Trafi. “Speaking of mobility services as a distant future is no longer accurate – the future is here now”, continues Gudonavičius.

The modes of mobility options are exploding, and the complexity of decision making is increasing. Mobility will be exponentially consumed as a service, and cities will need to get into the driver seat to actively steer developments facing the demands of changed consumer behaviour. Trafi supports partners to launch mobility service solutions from scratch by using its technology platform, enhances current mobility solutions through the addition of more and different types of transportation, and provides the leading mobility engine for delivering scalable solutions and owning the journey – wherever, whenever.
