HVV’s online tickets can now be booked and paid for using the Moovel mobility app. This means Hamburg’s Transport Association (HVV) is selling its tickets via an external service provider, which rivals it’s own app and also offers the possibility of booking Daimler’s rental car service Car2go and MyTaxi.
One-stop shop for urban mobility
Speaking at the presentation of the new collaboration, Lutz Aigner, head of HVV, 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 moovel app is therefore an interesting option, not least for passengers from out of town.” Jörg Lamparter, CEO of moovel Group GmbH, commented: “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.”
Double click to book on Moovel app
HVV is offering individual, day and group tickets via the Moovel app and is also giving a 3 per cent online discount. Users just have to double click to book. The tickets are then made available in the Moovel app and can be downloaded there. Billing is done between Moovel and HVV and the customer does not have to register again.
In late 2015, the Transport Authority of Stuttgart (VVS) became the first public transport provider to be included in the Moovel app. The company is offering the first one-stop shop in a city of millions by integrating HVV’s offers.
