Mobility-as-a-service provider Iomob (the Internet of Mobility) is to launch a new “seamless” ground transport mobility platform later this year.
The UK and Spain-based company has been working on the technology for more than three years, including running several pilot schemes, which can be integrated into existing mobility and transport websites and apps to allow them to offer third-party connections.
The platform, which will have a focus on sustainable travel options, will allow passengers to book and pay for a door-to-door journey involving several different modes of transport on a single app or website. Options include taxis, ride-hailing, parking, bicycles, e-scooters, car share and rental.
The Iomob platform currently offers access to more than 7,000 taxi fleets, 10,000 car parks and 1,800 public transport feeds in more than 270 cities.
The company is also building more partnerships in the UK and across Europe. It already has deals with ground transport providers such as CMAC, Bolt, Human Forest, Q-Park and Karhoo.
Adrian Ulisse, UK managing director at Iomob, said: “All over the world, people are the victims of disjointed journeys through a failure to link transport networks and modes of transport, which results in a negative passenger experience and unsurprisingly, many private car trips.
“Iomob’s disruptor technology is designed to supercharge existing transport and mobility apps around the world, providing greater access to sustainable travel options and for the first time, a seamless travel experience for people everywhere.”
The company said that it would announce the first major UK transport operator to launch the new platform on its app and website later this year.
