Škoda Auto DigiLab launches ‘Citymove’ mobility app

News

Congested roads and full car parks – these days, anyone wishing to drive into Prague’s city centre must be prepared for traffic jams and long waiting times. The new Citymove app– developed by Škoda Auto DigiLab – helps users to decide whether it is worth leaving their car at home.

Using Citymove, a clever mix of mobility options is possible: busses, trams, the metro, rental bikes, taxis and ride-hailing cars. Users can now select, book and pay for suitable means of transport that offer the best route - all using their fingertip.

Following a successful pilot phase, the app developed by Škoda Auto DigiLab is now available for Prague free of charge. For its launch, it consolidates the mobility services offered by Prague's transport association DPP - metro, bus, tram and ferry - ‘Freebike' e-bike sharing as well as the ride-hailing service ‘Liftago'. Škoda Auto DigiLab is working on integrating other services, such as car parking recommendations. As soon as the user has entered the start and destination of their journey, Citymove calculates the best route and suggests suitable means of transport.

Andre Wehner, Chief Digital Officer atŠkoda Auto, embraced the launch of this new intermodal app, saying, “Škoda Auto is consistently adding to its range of clever, new mobility services. Citymove enables many people to choose the best transport option for every single route in the city. This is a first. Users of the app literally hold the city's wide range of mobility options in their hands.”
Jarmila Plachá, Head of Škoda Auto DigiLab, added, “Our Citymove app consolidates numerous services into one application, thereby making urban life easier and more enjoyable. And that's only the beginning - over the coming months, other tailor-made services will be added.”

Following a free download, available for Android and iOS, the user just has to set up an account to book any of the services. E-bikes are paid for directly using the credit card details saved in the account, taxi rides are settled in the car and the text message tickets for urban traffic will be included in the phone bill.

The new Citymove app also promises easy and efficient parking in Prague's city centre. From now on, drivers can use it to find parking spaces and zones, as well as pay their parking fees by credit card via their phone.

The launch of the urban mobility app Citymove sees Škoda Auto position itself even more distinctly as a provider of integral mobility services - also allowing people who do not own a Škoda to benefit from the services that make customers' lives easier and more enjoyable. Interconnected mobility as well as clever solutions for the first and last mile play an essential role in this. And, as always, the brand places the greatest importance on both the degree of utility for the user's personal lifestyle and reducing the environmental impact.
