Electric mobility and green electricity guarantee sustainability
Three wheelchair-accessible EQVs from Mercedes-Benz are being used, each with six passenger seats. These can be called upon as needed via the app developed by door2door. Sustainability is important on Sylt, which is why the vans drive with zero local emissions and are powered by green electricity. Passengers get aboard the shuttle at around 1,000 virtual stops scattered throughout the operating area between Westerland, Tinnum, Keitum, Kampen, Wenningstedt, Braderup and Munkmarsch. They complement the existing stops of the public transport system. The app guides passengers to the nearest stop and computes the route to the destination. In the future, the service will be available across the entire island.
