Together with the district of Karlsruhe, the city of Ettlingen, the Karlsruher Verkehrsverbund (KVV) and the Regionalbusverkehr Südwest (RVS), moovel has announced the launch of "MyShuttle". With the timetable change on June 9, 2019, the first on-demand ridesharing offering in the KVV network will be available. The new form of mobility will be using electric mini-buses that users can book and pay for with just a few clicks via the smartphone app "KVV.mobil". The vehicles do not travel according to a fixed timetable, but serve about 250 virtual start and destination points within the city centre on demand. Ettlingen will initially serve as a lab for the new service until the end of 2020, which will expand and supplement the mobility offerings in the evening hours and on Sundays.
moovel (becoming REACH NOW), the leading provider of mobile ticketing solutions in North America, announced Wednesday that it has acquired Validated, a technology company that allows businesses, universities, retailers and restaurants to subsidize transportation for customers and employees and helps drive retail traffic to brick-and-mortar stores by offering ride subsidies to users of shared mobility services.
The moovel Group GmbH has launched an app-based mobility budget for more than 3,000 Daimler Financial Services employees in Germany: The ”Mobility Budget" includes a credit, which employees can use according to their personal preferences and book and pay for various mobility services using moovel's multimodal apps. The services include bus and train, the car sharing services car2go and DriveNow, the ridehailing service mytaxi and rental bikes. All offers can be booked and paid for directly via moovel apps - depending on availability in the respective city.
