Development of business units


The DB New Mobility business ecosystem develops flexible and digital solutions that can design local public transport that are seamless, easy and convenient from door to door. These include the offers from ioki, Mobimeo, and Clever­- Shuttle, the Call a Bike, Flinkster, Bonvoyo products and Curbside Management from DB Connect. DB New Mobility is aiming this offer at public transport authorities such as municipalities and transport associations.

ioki and CleverShuttle are increasingly working together with DB Regional Bus as DB Regional Road for an integrated mobility service. DB Connect has been developing solutions for interlinked mobility in the Infrastructure Board division since August 1, 2022.

  • CleverShuttle operates on-demand ride pooling in Germany. At the end of 2022, CleverShuttle operated 18 transport services nationwide on behalf of cities, municipalities and transport companies. Users are very satisfied with their journeys (4.9 out of 5 stars on average). From 2023 onwards, CleverShuttle will integrate autonomous vehicles into local public transport and will be responsible for the operational implementation of the autonomous on-demand service planned by the Rhine-Main Transport Association.
  • ioki has sustainably established its industry solution for digital mobility: to date, more than two million passengers have used the platform, about 650 stations and about 6,000 km² have been connected to local public transport using the ioki software. In 2022, autonomous shuttles with the ioki on demand software launched in Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland. Further transport services are expected to follow in 2023. ioki’s innovative mobility concepts received multiple awards in 2022, including the Passenger Award for Multimodal Travel, the German Mobility Award and the German Transport Transition Award.
  • Mobimeo further expanded its own mobility platform in 2022. Together with DB Regional, a new version of the DB Route Agent app was launched on this basis. In addition, together with the Mobility Inside Industry Initiative, the first six multimodal apps were launched for the participating transport associations, which could be used to search routes, purchase local public transport tickets and book ride-share vehicles.
  • Bonvoyo, the mobility budget as a flexible and sustainable benefit for employees continues to develop. Since April 2022, users have been able to track their CO₂ emissions directly in the app. Further long-distance transport services were included and TIER was integrated as a mobility partner. The Hamburg Transport Association (hvv) is already using the mobility budget as a payment method in its app, with additional mobility apps set to follow.
  • Call a Bike has demonstrated that rail and bicycles can be a real alternative to cars with summer campaigns in Munich and Berlin (pop-up stations at five S-Bahn (metro) stations in each city). Tesla employees now also travel from the S-Bahn (metro) to their own Call a Bike station at the Gigafactory in Grünheide. Since 2022, BahnBonus status customers have been benefiting from 30 free minutes each time they rent a bicycle.
  • DB Curbside Management has been supporting the city of Munich in implementing its mobility planning since fall 2022. The Curbside Cockpit app is used in the shared mobility sub-strategy. Already in operation at the Stuttgart-Vaihingen mobility station, some 19 other stations will follow based on the same model.
  • Flinkster contributes to sustainable mobility in about 400 cities. It was honored with an award from the German Institute for Service Quality in 2022. With the modernization of the fleet, Flinkster continues to focus on quality and safety.
