MaaS Twente is one of the seven national MaaS pilots, launched by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, together with various municipalities and the province. The MaaS Twente project uses travel app GOAN!. The app was launched on Tuesday, September 22, with a try-out. Alderman Anja Prins (municipality of Losser) is the chairman of MaaS Twente, and she is delighted that GOAN! can now really get going. “We want to make sure that residents can continue participating in society, especially in this day and age”, says Prins. “Transport can be essential for that.”
Alderman Prins is coordinating the development of the app for all eight participating municipalities in Twente: Twenterand, Oldenzaal, Tubbergen, Dinkelland, Hengelo, Enschede, Losser and Haaksbergen. GOAN! will give travellers customised travel advice. Prins: “All Twente residents and visitors will be able to plan easily, book and pay for their trip from A to B in one useful app. Ultimately, we want more sustainable and cheaper transport for travellers, governments and employers.”
The travel app is starting small; only a group of trial users will travel with the app for the time being. It is precious for the developers to see what the trial users are struggling with and what can be done more efficiently. The app can be tested so well, precisely because of the involvement of future users in the further development of GOAN!. User-friendliness will be improved in this way, so that the full roll-out in January 2021 will go smoothly.
Everyone will be able to use GOAN! from January 2021!
