SSB Flex 2.0 provides city-wide transit coverage at times and in places where traditional public transport falls short.
The service runs with an 11 vehicle fleet, and rides can be booked through an app or by phone in German or English. The new rider app that was introduced by Via has enhanced functionalities for the visually impaired and allows for smooth communication between riders and drivers. Additionally, the revamped service launched with a multimodal and intermodal integration, allowing riders to see within the app all transit options available in the city. Via’s advanced technology allowed it to migrate data from a previous provider and enable a smooth system transition in just a few weeks.
With the on-demand service, we want to make a further contribution to public services in Stuttgart in order to motivate even more people to switch from motorized individual transport to more climate-friendly public offers."
