On-request ride pooling.
Using public transport without having to stick to a timetable and sharing a ride in an especially comfortable van whenever and wherever you want? BerlKönig makes it all possible. ViaVan has joined forces with Berliner Verkehrsgesellschaft (BVG) to create a special type of project: on-demand ride pooling for the German capital. ViaVan is a joint venture between Mercedes-Benz Vans and the Via transport company.
The smartphone app from BerlKönig makes it possible.
The principle is as simple as it is ingenious: anyone who wants to get from A to B in Berlin enters the time and location at which they wish to travel as well as their intended destination. The app then bundles all of the desired routes of the various passengers together in as efficient a way as possible. Specifically this means that the software from ViaVan checks in real-time which journeys can be logically combined without resulting in major detours. And then the journey can begin. Up to six passengers can travel at the same time – also barrier-free.
Passengers can get in and out virtually anywhere:
At virtual bus stops which the app shows.
Safety, comfort and flexible departure times.
Individual advantages which relieve strain on the environment.
Dynamic and practical.
Those are just a few advantages of ViaVan's latest offering in Berlin.
Even the rear-end design is eye-catching.
Stylish and noticeable – the design concept for the Vito of the on-demand ride pooling service.
At the cutting edge.
The on-demand ride pooling from BerlKönig is new on Berlin's streets.
