Brightline Trains to Provide Door-to-Door Connectivity with Iomob

Brightline Trains to Provide Its Customers with Door-to-Door Connectivity through Iomob Mobility-on-Demand Platform

  • New collaboration to address common goal of door-to-door travel with a lower environmental impact.

Brightline Trains, the only privately funded high-speed passenger rail system in the United States, has appointed software company Iomob to supercharge Brightline’s app with journey planning capabilities. As part of Iomob’s strategic plan to grow within the U.S. market, Brightline has become its first U.S.-based client. The collaboration between Iomob and Brightline will be focused on the common goal of door-to-door travel with a lower environmental impact.

The new partnership will bring exciting and unique innovations to the rail experience, including the ability to plan, book and pay for an entire journey across a variety of transport modes. Offering a broad range of transport options works to achieve Iomob and Brightline’s common goal of empowering users while ultimately lowering the number of miles driven. Additionally, unlike other Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) providers, Iomob includes private cars in the mobility mix, ensuring smoother and more rapid adoption of multimodality within the general commuting public.

The partnership signifies a strong commitment to greener, more accessible, and seamlessly integrated journeys.

Through this partnership, Brightline plans to offer their current and future customers full door-to-door travel service, eliminating the gaps created by the first and last miles. By filling in these gaps, users can travel carefree:  a user can travel from the front door to a Brightline station, and then on to a final destination, all by using Brightline’s app. First and last-mile mobility options can include public transit, micromobility — such as a bike or e-scooter — rideshare, and on-demand shuttles. Customers who choose to use their own vehicle to arrive at the station can pre-book and pay for their parking through the app.

These additions to Brightline’s service offering further differentiate the company from its competitors while at the same time broadening its market, attracting new customers who may have previously preferred to travel in their own private vehicles.

President of Brightline, Patrick Goddard, said:

“Anyone familiar with Brightline recognizes our commitment to creating the best guest experience in travel and this new partnership will solve the long-standing question of the first and last mile. Offering door-to-door connectivity will make Brightline more convenient for our guests and make our stations more accessible to those seeking the best transportation option in Florida.”

 

For Iomob, this partnership signifies a strong commitment to greener, more accessible, and seamlessly integrated journeys. With Brightline, Iomob incorporates US rail as part of the global mobility-on-demand ecosystem.

Boyd Cohen, CEO at Iomob, said:

“As an American, bringing Iomob’s mobility platform to North America is of particular significance. Our newly established collaboration with Brightline represents a great opportunity for Iomob to showcase how mobility-on-demand can best be deployed in a US context. Having a forward-looking rail company like Brightline as a partner, we are confident that we can deliver a truly multimodal door-to-door experience to their customers. The strength of Iomob’s open mobility approach is that it is easily scalable and can be customizable to fit the needs of our clients across the US.”
