Cooperations – regional MaaS providers are the first stage
The companies that have been listed so far provide separate offers of mobility services. However, the first platforms that implement the MaaS principle in individual cities or regions also already exist. The best-known platform of this kind comes from Finland.
Whim – all means of transport in one app
Whim by MaaS Global started in Helsinki in 2016, but the service is now also available in several other European cities, including Vienna. Users can book a means of transport of their choice via one app, from public transport to taxis to e-scooters. In addition, they can pay directly via the app or even choose between subscriptions or prepaid packages, depending on the city. This makes Whim a true MaaS provider pioneer.
Mobil-Flat Augsburg – German MaaS platform
The swa Mobil-Flat also deserves to be called MaaS. Under this name, Stadtwerke Augsburg (swa) offers customers various “Mobil-Flats” for the city of Augsburg and its surroundings. Depending on which flat rate you choose, you can, for example, travel by bus and tram in the inner city for a monthly fee, and several times a day you can travel by bike for 30 minutes free of charge. In addition to that, there is an annual quota of between 60 and 360 hours or 600 to 3600 kilometres for car-sharing.
Jelbi – mobility service for Berlin
Jelbi is a project of the Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG). Like Whim, it is based on an app through which you can book and pay directly for various means of transport. In addition to public transport, it includes bike- and car-sharing. However, Jelbi does not offer subscriptions or flat rates yet. Instead, you pay for each journey individually.
