With the full integration of online tickets for local public transport in Hamburg, moved is offering a one-stop-shop for urban mobility: from now on, it is possible to book and pay for journeys by the transport modes within Hamburg Transport Association directly and conveniently via the moovel app.
At the presentation of the latest generation of the moovel app, the CEO of Hamburg Transport Association, Lutz Aigner, said: “We believe that further sales channels in the form of external mobility platforms are a useful addition to our wide variety of services. The sale of HVV tickets via the new moves app is therefore an interesting option, not least for passengers from out of town.”
Jörg Lamparter, moovel Group GmbH CEO: “Hamburg Transport Association is a key partner and the backbone of mobility in Hamburg, along with the buses, subway, suburban railway, ferries and regional trains. We are delighted that, in partnership with HVV, we can demonstrate just how much easier smartphones can make our mobility in cities. Our one-stop-shop for urban mobility is the only one of its kind in the world.”
Search for, book and pay for mobility with a single app
The mobility app from the wholly owned Daimler subsidiary shows users the best route to their destination: the free iOS and Android mobility app combines local public transport, the car-sharing providers car2go and Flinkster, mytaxi, Taxi-Ruf, rental bicycles and Deutsche Bahn. Using the moovel app, car2go, Flinkster, mytaxi and Deutsche Bahn can be booked and paid for simply and directly throughout Germany. In Hamburg, single, day and group HVV tickets are now also available – the booking and payment of the HVV tickets in the moovel app is so easy: if a connection search is carried out in the moovel search function, the app proposes the purchase of the appropriate HVV single ticket for the desired journey and shows day and group tickets as further options. Consequently, the user is already mobile after just two clicks. The tickets are then provided in the app and can be called up as necessary. The billing between moovel and HVV takes place in the background without any further login procedure for the customer.
