First digital call bus in public transport

Wittlich Shuttle

The Wittlich Shuttle in Rhineland-Palatinate is revolutionising mobility in rural areas. In cooperation with the town of Wittlich and DB Regio Bus Rhein-Mosel GmbH, ioki GmbH has integrated demand-responsive transport into the public transport system for the first time in Germany. With stops at the bus and central railway station, the service is well connected and offers a real alternative for the first and last mile.

Convenient booking via app or telephone offers flexibility for all age groups. In the city between the Eifel region and the Moselle River, older people in particular benefit from the service, as do commuters and people with limited mobility.

Even during the coronavirus crisis, the concept has proven to be safe, demand-oriented, and flexible. This was evident especially through the extension of the service to a vaccination shuttle and the connection to the local vaccination centre.

“The Wittlich Shuttle is a complete success for us: we have digitised the Rufbus with ioki and have thus been able to increase user numbers by 400%.”
