The Mobility Marketplace: the optimal platform for mobilityThe Mobility Marketplace enables the integration of providers with individual mobility products and services to form a comprehensive portfolio of offering. The platform provides the necessary information for intermodal mobility and enables transport operators to extend their range of services with multimodal and mobile services.
The B2B integration platform links different transportation systems and supports the integration of mobility providers on a contractual and business level. The Mobility Marketplace reduces the complexity and costs of managing multimodal services. The platform is equipped with a modular and flexible structure, and as an in-the-cloud solution, it is also highly scalable.
The provision of the platform services "as-a-service" reduces the financial hurdles for municipalities and transport companies. Mobility providers use the Mobility Marketplace as the basis for providing their customers with multimodal services. Intermodal functions can be made available to travellers via individually designed apps and websites – or integrated into existing systems.
Passengers thus have access to all the relevant information and services for a journey from a single source: from trip planning, booking and ticketing, to real-time information while on-the-move and transparent display of completed journeys. The traveler's preferences are decisive for the choice of travel recommendations – optimising according to time or cost, the number of transfers, the relevant means of transport and much more.
