Ubirider has built Pick an independent digital platform which combines traditional and modern ways of transportation to connect travellers and transport operators. The mobile app Pick by Ubirider (Android, iOS) allows users to plan door-to-door travel, pay and ride to all destinations, everywhere, using the best transport combination.
Through the Pick Hub web interface, which collects anonymised information from travellers' smartphones, transport operators benefit from a new, independent and transparent channel to manage ridership and fare collection in real-time, without additional infrastructure.
The impact of our platform Pick has 2 folds:
1) Contributes for the shift from individual to public transport, which reduces pollution and the space occupied by cars inside urban centres, through improving and simplifying the experience of planing door-to-door multimodal travels and paying the associated tickets or passes;
2) Provides unique and powerful real-time information to transport operators, useful to improve operacional efficiency, which impacts positively cities and rider needs, but also reduces the resources consumption.
