The Munich Transport Company (MVG) is expanding its individual public transport network by introducing an on-demand public transport service: the MVG IsarTiger. Bolstering existing public transport options in Munich such as subways, trams, busses, MVG Rad and CarSharing, the new mobility project will begin its pilot mid-June. The flexible ride-pooling service can be requested on-demand by customers by booking a ride via an app on their smartphones.

The technology behind this innovative, on-demand public mobility programme comes from door2door, a global provider of mobility solutions for on-demand economies and smart cities. The new public service does not have scheduled routes or fixed timetables. Instead, the platform uses advanced algorithms and data to calculate the fastest and most efficient ride-pooling routes. The new mobility offering is convenient, safe and environmentally friendly.
