(Hamburg, January 29, 2020) A study by the Technical University of Hamburg shows an increase of attractiveness for public transport and potential for climate protection • 72 per cent of passengers are taken to a public transport stop • Every fourth passenger replaces car rides with shuttle
(Hamburg, November 11, 2019) The on-demand shuttle service ioki Hamburg has already established itself as a mobility module in the neighbourhoods of Osdorf and Lurup and is now also available in Billbrook. Commuters in particular will benefit from this service, which supplements existing bus routes and makes local public transport more attractive.
(Bad Birnbach, October 7th, 2019) Autonomous driving on public roads in Germany reaches the next milestone in the Bavarian spa town of Bad Birnbach: driverless shuttle buses now connect the train station with the town centre, which is about two kilometers away, via a country road.
Economic initiative “Stadt in Bewegung” digitises cities – founding partner ioki as mobility expert on board
No broadband, few services, too much traffic – Germany’s cities urgently need to catch up in terms of digitization. This is well known. For a long time citizens have wished for smarter cities with new services and innovative services.
DB Regio Bus, the market leader in local public transport in Germany, and ioki, Deutsche Bahn’s subsidiary for innovative mobility solutions, are now working even more closely together. From now on, the two DB divisions will join forces to shape new mobility and to enable even more people to benefit from demand-driven mobility through interconnected transport services without owning a car.
(Berlin, 26 August 2019) No stops, no fixed routes and no timetable: Stadtwerke Krefeld (SWK) and ioki start a night traffic in Krefeld with “my SWCAR”, which can be booked via app. The on-demand shuttles supplement the public transport system flexibly during the off-peak hours between 8 pm and 4 am.
(Berlin, August 16, 2019) Since today, the first highly automated bus has been in operation on the public roads of a major German city.
