Hamburg by Bike… and Bahn: Trufi’s Bike App Will Launch in October

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.

Nicht ohne mein Rad – Hamburg

The name of the app is Nicht ohne mein Rad – Hamburg (Not Without My Bike – Hamburg).

Bringing this app to prime time is a partnership between Trufi, ITS Hamburg, Hamburg Transport Association (HVV), and City of Hamburg.

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.

Updated on 30 September, 2021 to include the name of the app.
