HAFAS meets TICKeos in Berlin
Berlin is now benefitting from HaCon’s partnership with EOS UPTRADE: The BVG’s new mobile app called “FahrInfo Plus” provides both timetable information and ticketing and comfortably navigates passengers through the traffic jungle in the German capital.
The Berlin commuter and underground trains, buses and trams are the lifelines of the vibrant German metropolis. Every year, the Berlin transport company BVG carries more than 900 million commuters and tourists across all districts – from Adlershof to Zehlendorf. An indispensable guide through the city, the BVG app “FahrInfo Plus” for iPhone, Android or Windows Phone now includes important HAFAS components as well as a fresh design and numerous innovative features.
The app provides all important functionalities you need to comfortably get from A to B – like routing, push notifications and mobile ticketing. Brand-new features include the integrated departure countdown and an exit alert that help visitors and night owls to never miss a certain station or stop and make sure that passengers always get off the train or bus at the right time and place. Additionally, the OSM-based map views were streamlined and now feature the BVG’s transport network and routes and also display footpaths. Users can save favorite routes and lines and easily access them later. Moreover, available vehicles of the two car sharing providers car2go and DriveNow can be displayed on an interactive proximity map and even be reserved via “FahrInfo Plus.”
