UbiGo and Fluidtime giving households in Stockholm and Gothenburg autonomy from private cars.

The MaaS solution UbiGo allows to consume a city’s entire shared and public mobility offering with a mobility subscription.

The MaaS project UbiGo became the starting point for the new mobility paradigm that is becoming a reality in cities and regions around the world.

The mobility app UbiGo combines public transport, car sharing, rental car services and taxi in one app. The MaaS service is based on a flexible monthly subscription with an account shared by all members of a household. Every end user searches and books routes via the app. For the payment the customer chooses a mobility subscription that is linked to a mobility account, e.g. of the family. The company has started operations in Stockholm in 2019. Within the first year of operation, it demonstrated the feasibility of bundling mobility options into packages. Offering these via subscriptions has proven to be crucial for user acceptance.

UbiGo recently expanded its commercial offering to Gothenburg, which was previously a pilot installation. Together with Via-ID, the company plans to expand to other cities and countries.

About UbiGo

UbiGo was the first deployment of a MaaS service with Level 3 integration of transport services. Hans Arby, CEO and founder of UbiGo, is an internationally recognized MaaS pioneer. After the successful pilot project in Gothenburg in 2013, the commercial MaaS application was launched in Stockholmin 2018. With more than 2 million inhabitants, the market potential for UbiGo is estimated at 30% of the 250,000 households and families in Stockholm. The mobility accelerator Via-ID has been the majority shareholder of UbiGo since 2019 with the vision to spread the MaaS experience of UbiGo worldwide.

Potential Growth

Service packages catering the various needs of the customers

Subscriptions for public transport, carsharing and car rental reduce the need for a private car. Every month, the credit balance of the subscriptions is increased according to personal preferences. Any remaining balance is credited to the following month. The holder of a mobility account receives a monthly invoice for all mobility services consumed.

Share accounts with family or team members and simplify the access to and payment of mobility.

Subscriptions can be shared with other members of UbiGo, within the family, among colleagues or friends. For the booking of each mobility option an own or a shared account can be used. Accounts can be limited to booking certain means of transport, e.g. no taxi rides for children, only car rental for employees.

What users say…

It’s simple. It’s mobility as part of my rent and no need to own a car anymore.”

“The best part: I can redeem points for my trips together with my kids to the countryside with a rental car on the weekend.”

“No matter whether I prefer to be sporty by bikesharing or more comfortable by metro – it is easy and seamless.”
