Stuttgart Services: the intermodal mobility card for Stuttgart
Electronic ticket for electromobility offerings
The Service Card for the Stuttgart Services project is the first electronic ticket for e-mobility in and around Stuttgart. In the initial phase of the project, subscribers have been able since 2015 to use the Service Card as an electronic ticket. Marketed under the polygo brand, the project was funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy until June 2016.
As one of 40 projects included in Baden-Württemberg’s “LivingLab BWe mobil” e-mobility showcase, the Stuttgart Services project seeks to make access to e-mobility services as seamless as possible for customers traveling in the Stuttgart region, and to supplement them with further citywide offers. The Service Card will not only open up the city’s e-mobility potential; it will also integrate everyday aspects of urban life by serving as a library card, swimming-pool membership card, and payment card.
Intermodal information and booking platform
To support the card, Bosch Software Innovations provides an intermodal information and booking platform that serves as a central access point for users of services while keeping billing decentralized. As an alternative to the physical card format, the Service Card will soon be available as a smartphone app as well.
The Service Card promotes e-mobility by establishing networks and collaborations that grant its users truly easy access to all the services offered.
