The regiomove mobility platform combines several modes of transport, ranging from bike and car rentals to buses and trams, allowing passengers to plan their intermodal journey using the regiomove app. They only have to register once, and can then see all the intermodal travel options, book them with just a few clicks and all their trips will be automatically paid using the stored payment method. The corresponding booking and payment platform has been developed by INIT. This platform not only has interfaces to all transport service providers, but also ensures that users receive the appropriate ticket or access code at the right stage of their journey.
In order to facilitate the switch from one mode of transport to another, several mobility hubs, called ports, are being built in the Karlsruhe region. Here, passengers can conveniently combine journeys by tram, bus, rental car or bicycle. In addition, service areas are being installed, such as information terminals, e-charging stations or bicycle service stations. The integration of other forms of transport such as on-demand minibuses and car sharing of electric vehicles is already in the planning stage.
Regiomove is not simply a public transport project, it is a complete mobility project. The app suggests possible routes using a combination of public transport and active travel options such as rental bicycles instead of using a private car (and indicates the associated CO² emissions for each travel option). It aims to encourage users to switch to other modes of transport. With each enquiry, the current traffic situation is taken into account - for all modes of transport. For example, if there is congestion on the motorway, the app recommends taking the tram instead. In addition, the app also informs passengers about the number of parking spaces available in car parks, about the parking charges and even about their opening hours.
