Leicester City Council has partnered with SkedGo for its Choose How You Move initiative.
The Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) technology company has been tasked to launch an app as part of a scheme that aims to strengthen sustainable and active travel in the region. The app, which will be available for both Android and iOS users, offers an easy-to-use journey planner that incorporates public transport, taxis, e-bikes from Santander Cycles, cycling and walking routes and Park and Rides spaces.
John Nuutinen, CEO of SkedGo, said: “MaaS doesn’t have to be complicated,”
“Our widget and white label solutions are a perfect tool for local governments to quickly and efficiently act on their sustainability and social equity commitments.”
Harvey Blundell, assistant transport development officer, Leicester City Council, says: “By breaking down the barriers to sustainable transport, and by making alternative modes and multi-modal journeys as accessible as possible, we are delivering on our commitments to address the climate emergency and to reduce air pollution, while also making the city a better place to live, work, and visit.”
