Innovactory has won the tender for the Mobility as a Service (MaaS) trial in Utrecht Leidsche Rijn, Vleuten and De Meern. The app that Innovactory is developing is called TRIPPS and should stimulate alternatives to the car, make traveling easier and improve accessibility.
Lucien Groenhuijzen, CEO of Innovactory: “We are delighted with the launch of TRIPPS in Utrecht. With TRIPPS we offer travelers in the region one app for all their journeys, planned or spontaneous. It should be your personal travel assistant, with ease, simplicity and reliability first, so that as a traveler you can travel seamlessly from one place to another. TRIPPS then gives you personal advice, gives you access to all transport and payment is completely automatic. ”
With TRIPPS, travelers receive information about all options for transport and can plan, book and pay for them via the app. It concerns all possible means of transport: (shared) cars, public transport, (shared) bicycles and taxis. The app provides travelers with current and personal travel advice and updates about delays, traffic jams and alternative routes.
Six more national MaaS pilots will start in the near future in Amsterdam-Zuidas, Eindhoven, Groningen-Drenthe, Limburg, Rotterdam-The Hague and Twente. The pilots test, among other things, what does and does not work in terms of travel behavior and policy impact, among other things. The data obtained from the privacy-proof data enables the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, regional authorities, MaaS providers and transporters to learn together how the total mobility system can be optimized.
