Introducing the multimodal app myDVG
In January 2019, DVG and door2door entered the next phase of their cooperation. With the new multimodal app myDVG, passengers can compare all available means of transport in real time at a glance, buy tickets directly in the app and always make the best choice. Transport modes include bus, train, myBUS, bike rental and taxi. myDVG unites two discontinued apps that customers had previously used separately: the Route Planner (route planning and comparison of transport modes) and myBUS (booking myBUS rides). Offering one-stop access to the city’s entire mobility spectrum is an important step in making public mobility smarter, more seamless and more responsive to citizens’ needs.
“With myDVG, passengers can quickly and easily find the route that works best for them,” says Birgit Adler, Division Manager Operations and Market at DVG. “You get all the information in real time from a single source and can book myBUS directly in the app.” Adler adds: “The app provides a good basis to develop next steps. For example, we are planning direct ticket purchases in the app and would like to include even more transport modes. This brings us closer to our goal of intermodality.”
