Connecting bike routes with public transport in a journey planner app has never been implemented with cycling prioritized. Not to the satisfaction of cyclists; not until Trufi developed the hackathon-winning, Not Without My Bike app in November 2020. Now that app is moving from proof-of-concept, and will launch in October at the ITS World Congress in Hamburg, which runs from October 11 to 15.
The fully-mature smartphone app will be available on Android and IOS, and will connect bike routes with the public transportation of Hamburg:
- Experienced cyclists will discover new ways to negotiate the city in combination with bike-friendly public transport.
- Hesitant cyclists will overcome their hesitancy, and expand the radius of their journeys by bike.
- Visiting cyclists will be able to navigate the city like a local, with routes from OpenStreetMap.
The ITS Congress is ground-zero for people focused on smart mobility and Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) for policy makers, experts and the general public.
Trufi will have a delegation at the ITS World Congress. To keep up on our activities at the ITS, be sure to follow Trufi on Twitter.
