Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) technology provider SkedGo has strengthened its relationship with Leicester Buses Partnership with its journey planner widget now embedded into the Leicester Buses website.
It will offer travellers preference-based, door-to-door bus trip planning and help promote a wide range of local bus travel options.
The partnership brings together Leicester City Council and all Leicester’s bus companies to help transform the city’s network over the next eight years by delivering a package of measures to collectively improve and sustain bus travel.
John Nuutinen, co-founder and CEO, SkedGo says: “The SkedGo Journey Planner Widget adopted by Leicester Buses provides commuters with a range of bus travel options, which is a low-carbon and low-cost alternative to the private car.”
A spokesperson from Leicester Buses, adds: “The partnership with SkedGo aims to help make bus travel easier, by allowing users to plan their journey on one central website, rather than having to visit each individual operator’s website for their bus travel needs.
“This is one of the main steps in helping to make the Leicester Buses website the ‘go to’ place for information on bus travel in Leicester. Our goal is to bring transformative change in bus travel that’s electric, frequent, reliable, easy and great value.”
The SkedGo Journey Planner Widget replicates the Choose How You Move ecosystem implemented by Leicester City Council earlier this year, further strengthening SkedGo’s relationship with the city.
