BIKERR – First marketplace offering access to all types of bikes for sharing ▼
We are aiming for Bikerr to be an effective last-mile solution allowing tourists and local residents to travel freely as they wish. We launched a test site in autumn 2016 and attracted over one thousand subscribers.
This initial version enabled us to refine our business model.
Now, our goal is to develop the platform towards a freemium model, leveraging the network effect and facilitating access to bikes.
Bikerr’s ambition is to become the European leader in bike rentals within 5 years, before rolling out our solution in the rest of the world.
With Bikerr, you’ll always have a bike to hand!

MotionTag - Platform for seamless pay-as-you-go ticketing ▼
We provide an oyster card-like ticketing system without additional infrastructure: easy to scale, cost-efficient and simple access for the end-user. Through machine learning on smartphone sensor data we passively detect ten different transport types in the background. By integrating APIs and further data sources, we provide a fully software-based ticketing technology that works as a check-in/be-out solution.
Our platform is designed to easily integrate public transportation and other mobility services such as car-sharing solutions. It enables Mobility-as-a-Service in a pay-as-you-go manner, not forcing the user to plan his future mobility demand. Besides increasing the attractiveness of the transport system through state-of-the-art ticketing, our platform generates accurate multimodal data that can be used to improve the existing transport system: optimize timetables and routes, enable flexible pricing schemes, and finally focus the mobility system around the user.
Open Transport - An open mobility platform ▼
Our goal is to provide users with the freedom to access all modes of transportation and to allow transport operators of any size to easily join the on-demand economy. Open Transport connects all mobility supply available through an API that tracks a vehicle’s position and availability to deliver work to all connected vehicles. Open Transport also creates a level playing field for operators to compete on as we provide the tools needed to monetize services.
Our view is that if all mobility options are open, a new attitude to car ownership geared towards collaborative consumption is fostered, resulting in an increase in transport’s aggregate efficiency while reducing every journey's carbon footprint. Suppliers of any size, with vehicles of any kind, can offer their services through our digital platform. From businesses looking to integrate smart mobility to their mobile apps to transport operators wanting to offer first and last mile solutions for their customers, Open Transport provides the optimal mobility solution to get from point A to point B.
