door2door, the digital mobility solution for today’s on-demand economy and tomorrow’s smart cities, announced today its partnership with Brisa, through its affiliate company Via Verde Serviços. The partnership aims at creating advanced mobility solutions for smart cities and at democratizing access to on-demand mobility services.
The first initiative of this collaboration will be an all-in-one platform for on-demand mobility services and public transportation options – with a pilot to be launched in Lisbon later this year. The platform will analyze an array of mobility options in a user’s surrounding – such as ride sharing apps, carpooling services, public transportation, etc. – to provide a list of data-driven, intelligent options to a destination: including pricing and real-time schedules. The marketplace will be accessible via an easy-to-use app available on both iOS and Android.
“The mobility market is saturated with transportation options, but it’s difficult to know which option or route is best, especially with the hectic schedule of today’s modern commuter,” said Dr. Tom Kirschbaum, founder and managing director of door2door. “With this exciting partnership with Brisa, we want to provide commuters with a first step towards more individualized public transportation decisions in Lisbon.”
door2door’s technology and data analysis capabilities enable Via Verde and other transportation players to understand mobility patterns and to identify gaps in existing public transportation. Brisa’s technologies enable users to reach destinations in the fastest way possible, while minimizing the impact on the environment. Together, the companies will help create more effective and sustainable on-demand travel options for users – accelerating the future of smart-mobility in smart cities.
“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with door2door to provide better transportation accessibility and efficiency in smart cities – starting with Lisbon,” said Filipe Coelho, mobility program manager at Via Verde Serviços. “This initiative will offer a glimpse of what’s to come from the partnership of these two leading companies: first movers changing the way we move through our urban environment.”
