Mobility as a service (MaaS) has been taken to the next level, with the integration of TIER's electric shared scooters and bicycles in Gaiyo. If you want to use a TIER scooter or bicycle, you can easily arrange this within the Gaiyo transport app. Electric micromobility such as TIER's is ideal for bridging the so-called first and last mile, such as the ride from your home to a station, or from a P+R to work in the city centre. The addition of TIER's e-scooters and e-bikes in Gaiyo makes it very easy to use this type of shared transport. You can plan, book, open and pay for the two-wheelers in no time at all within the Gaiyo app. Who dares to claim that partial transport is time-consuming?
Gaiyo is the first Dutch app with which TIER has entered into an integration partnership like this. For both parties, this integration is an important step in the maturation of MaaS.
Eindhoven and Utrecht
TIER Mobility is a German unicorn and European market leader in the field of shared transport. The company has been active in the Netherlands since September 30, 2021. The TIER bicycles can be found in Eindhoven and Utrecht, the scooters only in Utrecht. According to TIER, other Dutch cities are likely to follow.
Clear and simple
Gaiyo's route planner includes the available TIER offer at the user's location in various route recommendations. Thanks to this service it becomes possible to choose different means of transport and also to make several combinations; depending on the (mobility) preferences of the user. The entire trip can be planned, booked and paid for with Gaiyo. Mobility has never been so clear and simple.
For the use of the TIER scooter or bicycle you pay in advance, from the Gaiyo wallet. If your costs later turn out to be less than what you reserved for, you will receive the excess paid back in your wallet. In case of a negative amount, the remaining amount will be collected automatically. The starting rate is €1 and you pay between €0,15 and €0,30 per minute, depending on the vehicle and location.
Gaiyo is a MaaS app that functions as a personal transportation assistant and was developed by a team of former TomTom employees. The app provides real-time insight into all available travel options and combinations, including departure and arrival times, travel time and costs. The app also gives access to many transport options in the area and lets you plan, book and pay for shared transport. Moreover, Gaiyo is the cheapest street parking app in the Netherlands. In December 2020, De Volkskrant called Gaiyo 'the most comprehensive and comprehensive transport app at the moment'.
