Bayern Fahrplan Launches Gullivr App
Travelling with the 9-euro ticket in Bavaria and beyond has the perfect companion: the “(Next) Bayern Fahrplan app.” Now that the beta version of the app is available in iOS and Android app stores, it takes the place of the similarly named “Bayern Fahrplan app” in the medium term, according to representatives of the Bavarian Railways Company (BEG).
As the app transitions away from the beta version, it will begin to offer additional features like push notifications, information regarding accessibility, advanced notification about connections, bike, car or scooter-sharing information, the ability to book directly in the app, dark mode, and much more.
The BEG is the first customer to launch a beta version of what is known internally at MENTZ as the Gullivr MaaS app. “With the new functions, the Bayern Fahrplan app is being transformed into a comprehensive mobility app for the entire state of Bavaria,” affirmed Thomas Prechtl, spokesman for the management board at the BEG. “The app is a crucial part of our goal to make public transport as easy and convenient as possible.”
“Passengers can actively participate in the app’s ongoing development by testing the beta version,” added Prechtl.
“The new app will digitally link public transport to other mobility services and help connect urban and rural areas,” declared Christian Bernreiter, Minister of Transport for Bavaria. “Once the app is in full operation, people living in Bavaria will have full access to all mobility services with their smartphone.”
Beta version users are asked to report feedback directly to the BEG. By doing so, they help improve the app through feature voting as part of the development concept used by MENTZ.
