Trafi connects three Swiss cities within a single app to launch the first regional Mobility as a Service (MaaS)

ZURICH, BASEL, BERN, VILNIUS – Today, Trafi, the European leader for MaaS platforms, in collaboration with Verkehrsbetriebe Zürich, Basler Verkehrs-Betriebe BVB, Bernmobil, and SBB CFF FFS, is launching the first regional and multi-city MaaS app. It is called “​yumuv”.

  • Mobility services and transportation modes in Zurich, Bern, and Basel will now be connected into one single centralized app. The Yumuv app is already available in the city of Zurich, and launches in Bern and Basel will follow shortly.
  • The Yumuv app by Trafi now makes it possible for people of Switzerland to use all kinds of mobility modes seamlessly in one place – from itineraries to ticketing and subscription packages.
  • On top of the public transportation offer, the app will also integrate new mobility companies such as the bike-sharing app BOND, and e-scooter companies Voi and Tier. Trafi and the cities are committed to integrating additional mobility services and providers, such as taxis, and car-sharing operators.
  • The new single-payment model (one credit card for all apps) will be available for a period of one year, seeking insights into how users move around the city.

Our new single payment model for Yumuv represents a new standard in MaaS technology. It allows users to split their subscription allowance among different operators. Such a mechanism will ensure a cheaper and smoother exploration of new mobility options for travelers.

Such an evolution is made possible by Trafi’s technology, which solves the challenge of multi-choices mobility options and previously-incompatible price models to offer a unified experience to the users.
