Integrated Mobility platform and SMILE app

The research project SMILE aims at developing the prototype for a standardised platform for all means of transport. This open platform integrates offers from various mobility providers. Several mobility partners already take part in the research project. Since November 2014 the App is already running and tested.

The mobility platform provides information, booking, payment and use of a broad range of different means of transport. The perfect tool for the end user to conveniently and easily benefit from all the features and functions of the mobility platform is the SMILE app on the smartphone. By using it, you are SIMPLY MOBILE.

Here is an extract of the official Smile project web: http://smile-einfachmobil.at/einfachmobil_en.html

What is “Integrated Mobility”?

Integrated mobility means that we use and combine several different means of transport for our trips.

Be it underground or train, bike or e-bike, taxi or car: we choose the suitable means of transport for the current situation depending on the purpose of the trip, the requirements and personal preferences; we also combine them accordingly. Experts call this multimodal and intermodal mobility.

Even today, this can still be very complicated due to many different types of information systems, tariffs, tickets and access systems, confusing guidance systems at changing locations and a lack of information in the event of disruption.

The one thing that is missing is one standardised platform for all means of transport,
one universal access key which we carry with us at all times.

That is the way how we will be SIMPLY MOBILE in the future.
