Berlin’s public transport operator, Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) has selected Vianova to evaluate e-scooter and car-sharing data to improve connections between public transport and shared mobility.
Through this partnership, BVG will work with mobility data platform, Vianova to try and increase the safe and effective use of micromobility in Berlin.
For example, Vianova’s Cityscope platform will be used to plan 150 parking zones and mobility hubs across the capital that will conveniently link with public transport.
This collaboration will help improve BVG’s Mobility as a Service (MaaS) app, Jelbi, which provides users with access to more than 70,000 shared vehicles, alongside Berlin’s public transport network.
“The only way to truly unlock the power and potential of shared services is to have greater insight over how those services are being used. The adoption of such services in Berlin in recent years is a testament to both BVG’s innovative approach to transportation, as well as the fleet operators it has partnered with. Our insights at Vianova will help build on this success; from keeping the streets safer and tidier for all, to better regulation and stronger transport links designed to bring the city and its residents closer together.”
Vianova’s award from BVG follows its recently announced collaboration with the cities of Amsterdam, Utrecht and Eindhoven in the Netherlands to advance the integration of shared mobility services.
These projects build upon the company’s previous successes, including a partnership with Bruxelles Mobilité that has helped Belgian authorities identify the most frequented shared mobility streets. This data was then used to develop plans for over 40 kilometres of pop-up cycle lanes and 120 new geofenced policy zones.
“We’re delighted to have been selected by BVG to play a key role in its plans to take Berlin’s transport network to the next level. The growth of shared and connected services worldwide has made the systematic use of mobility data increasingly important. We’re seeing greater demand from transport pioneers for services that unite operators, authorities and planners together as we all push for the same goal of safer, cleaner, better connected mobility for all.”
