All-in-one Mobility in Antwerp

Bike sharing in Antwerp, will be one of the few options of Whim.

MaaS Global launched Whim in Antwerp, as a result citizens of Antwerp can use a variety of mobility modes united in one application. 

The Finish company MaaS Global had launched Whim before in Helsinki and Birmingham. The MaaS platform should open up the boundaries of multimodality, by offering the best mobility solution to get from A to B out of the entire spectrum of mobility modes. Users in Antwerp will have to pay €55 for unlimited access to busses, trams and shared Vélo bikes. For an additional €10, they can order a taxi for any distance under 5km, or they can rent a Sixt rental car for €49 a day.

The mobility offer is still expanding, in the future it might also contain NMBS trains, shared Mobit bikes, car sharing and car parking. The possibilities for limitless mobility are limitless.
