Intermodal transport – convenient mobility across all modes of transportation

Intermodal – all forms of transportation at a click

Commuters get to their destinations efficiently. Cities manage their traffic volumes. Mobility providers improve the capacity utilization.

Mobility providers earn more

Connected mobility offers increase the number of users and improve capacity utilitzation. Tickets that are valid for all forms of transportation promote synergies and improve earnings.

Commuters arrive sooner

Commuters can conveniently plan, book, and pay for travel even when using a wide range of transit options. This shortens travel times, lowers mobility costs, and reduces their CO2 footprint.

Intermodal transportation

When every mode of transport is the right one


More and more people want to get from A to B quickly and easily, but capacity is already being stretched to the limit – especially in large cities. This results in overloaded infrastructure, traffic congestion, and delays. That is why our goal is not to create more transportation, but instead make transportation more personal.

Here’s how to solve the dilemma: if you combined all the options that currently exist – public transit, car sharing, bike sharing, taxis, etc. – it would be simple to plan a customized route. But to create these transportation alternatives, you need software platforms that can connect various mobility providers. This is where we come in: we make your life easier by developing such integrated information and booking platforms for intermodal mobility.

The 5 building blocks of intermodal transportation

5 building blocks enable intermodal mobility

All our efforts in intermodal transportation center on meeting our users’ mobility needs in the best possible way. To do this, five building blocks are key:

1. A large number of mobility services – such as car sharing, public transit services, or bike sharing – can be combined to satisfy these mobility needs.

2. To minimize motorized transportation, it must be possible to plan routes across several modes of transportation.

3. If use of an application is to be truly convenient, it must include a simple way to pay for any and all modes of transportation used.

4. Live data on current travel times improves the confidence in and reliability of intermodal transportation.

5. App-specific mobility assistants as well as hotlines provide convenient support for people on the go.
