Sixt expands ‘Mobility as a Service’ solution to include public transport
Sixt is expanding its ‘Mobility as a Service’ (MaaS) flexible mobility budget to now include public transport.
Provided as an alternative to traditional company cars, the budget is already available for car rental (Sixt Rent), ride hailing (Sixt Ride) and car & scooter sharing (Sixt Share) and is said to be increasingly seen as an attractive incentive by current employees at larger firms.
In addition, users can now track their spend vs budget, manage all transactions and tag business or private usage via the Sixt Milo App especially tailored to this service and pay for them via the Sixt Mobility Visa Card, developed in partnership with mobility service provider XXImo.
Vinzenz Pflanz, senior vice president corporate sales of Sixt SE, said: “Mobility is an important keyword of our time. But for us, it is much more than that because we know what potential the right mobility has for companies. Sixt MaaS is the best example of this: it increases flexibility in use, increases the attractiveness of companies as innovative employers, is an important incentive for employees and can significantly reduce fleet costs thanks to its needs-based concept. That is why we will continue to develop and expand the model in cooperation with our customers.”
Sixt has also introduced a Mobility Club pilot project, which explores changes in corporate mobility. Under the project, groups of 300-400 drivers exchange their company vehicles for the MaaS mobility budget for three to six months. The research is designed to allow all parties to learn more about how users’ behaviour changes when changing from ownership to usership and what tools people use daily for routing and live traffic updates to navigate their daily schedules and access different modes of transport.
