After the Assistant SNCF, the MaaS app launched by the French railway company, it is the turn of the Spanish company to deploy its own. Indeed, it’s official! Siemens Mobility & Everis have just signed a 5 years contract with RENFE. The aim is to deploy a MaaS (Mobility as a Service) application in Spain. Zoom on this announcement confirming the rise of MaaS in Europe.
RaaS, The future countrywide MaaS platform
Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Valencia, Bilbao, … These are some cities where we will be able to use the Renfe as a Service application. 11 cities from the first quarter of 2022 to finally cover 27 cities in the first quarter of 2023. A single application allowing to book both a train ticket, of course. But also buy a bus ticket, unlock a bike or scooter, or book a carpooling place. And all this in a single payment without leaving the platform.
A technology, entirely provided by Siemens Mobility and its subsidiaries. Namely, Hacon, Eos.uptrade, Bytemark & Padam Mobility. While the Everis consulting firm will be responsible for the system integration and the entire commercial operation, including the marketing and legal aspects.
We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to accompany Renfe in their aspired transformation from a rail operator to an enabler of seamless door-to-door mobility. Our intermodal software platform and digital solutions will help deliver one of the world’s most ambitious MaaS projects, that has the potential to set new benchmarksAndre Rodenbeck, CEO Rail Infrastructure at Siemens Mobility
An increase of 3 to 4% in train ticket sales
A platform that could attract as many as 650,000 new train passengers and 1.8 million new trips per year, following the Renfe’s prediction. Equivalent, of nearly 156 million in additional revenue, in the five years following implementation. Eventually, the railway company does not intend to stop there, integrating the booking of leisure, restaurants and hotels.
