Skjutsgruppen is Sweden’s only service combining public transport with carpooling in rental cars and private vehicles. Skjutsgruppen is a non-profit carpooling movement, which today engages over 70,000 participant. The goal is to use existing resources more efficient, which benefits the envorinment while increasing mobility and meeting people. Ten years ago, Mattias Jägerskog started Skjutsgruppen as a social experiment. Friends invited friends via social media to ride together and the response was huge.
This August, London-based startup Citymapper launched its travel and navigation app for Stockholm. Since 2012, the app has been guiding commuters in London, New York and 35 other major cities around the world. In addition to public transport, the service also shows walking and cycling routes and accommodates other means of transport such as Uber, rental bikes and car-sharing services. The fact that the popular navigation app Citymapper has chosen to cover Stockholm doesn’t quite follow the pattern of how this fast-growing tech company tends to choose cities.
The app Resledaren makes it easier to travel with public transport, especially for people with cognitive disabilities such as adhd and autism. With extra memory support and an overview of the journey, the app provides the support many people need to travel independently on public transport. Now the developers behind Resledaren are taking the next step with the new project Dit-i-tid (There-on-time). The Resledaren app was born three years ago during Trafiklab’s Travelhack innovation competition, where developers competed during 24 hours to create services that improve public transport.
Since a year ago, travellers in Stockholm’s city centre have been able to get real-time traffic information directly on screens on board the blue buses with the KeoScreens service. For example, they can see upcoming stops, possible changes and how many minutes it is to the change. The result is more satisfied travellers - as many as 95% say the screens make their journey easier. KeoScreens is the brainchild of the operator Keolis, which came up with the idea three years ago when it submitted a tender for Stockholm’s inner city bus services.
