Press Release 3.5.2019 | For immediate release
Smart mobility start-up companies, Kyyti Group Oy and Roboride Oy, have agreed on close cooperation. The world has growing interest in Finnish transport expertise, and both companies are pioneers in their fields. Kyyti Group is a MaaS platform supplier (Mobility-as-a Service) specializing in enabling door-to-door travel chains combining multiple mobility modes. Roboride is an operator using electrical autonomous vehicles that handle the first and last mile.
The first collaboration between Kyyti Group and Roboride is at the University of Pune campus in India. Kyyti Group provides a platform to operate all the mobility services of the University, including buses, autonomous vehicles, rental bikes and possibly electric rickshaws.
“In practice, the service could mean that a student arrives at the main gate of the campus area using public transport services with the university’s own application. The trip from the gate to the door of the lecture hall would be carried out by Robo or rickshaw ordered in advance with the same application,” says Pekka Möttö, CEO of Kyyti Group.
“The optimal distance for a Robo service is 1-5 kilometers. The route is not based on a fixed line, it’s true autonomous on-demand transport service.” says Tatu Nieminen, Managing Director of Roboride Oy.
“Roboride doesn’t develop autonomous vehicles. Roboride help its customers to avoid capex providing transport service as a service.”
According to Pekka Möttö and Tatu Nieminen, other promising joint projects are already on-going.
“Finns have reputation as the world’s experts on mobility and our solutions are in demand around the world”.
