Passenger app

Karhoo Pool comes with a white label (i.e. that can be fully customised with your logo and colours) mobile application offering a state-of-the-art booking experience available in several languages for passengers, including:

  • Booking – Departure and destination, number of passengers, desired time of departure (incl. as soon as possible) or desired time of arrival
  • Tracking – Real time vehicle visualisation on a map and updated estimated pick-up and drop-off times
  • Informing – Passengers get notifications about their trip by push (inside the app) and by email / SMS

Karhoo Pool also offers APIs to seamlessly implement the above features within an existing MaaS application.

People who don’t possess a smartphone can book through a web portal and will receive email and SMS notifications as the vehicle approaches.

Our successes

Grand Duché du Luxembourg – BummelBus

Since 2019, Karhoo Pool has been helping the Forum pour l’emploi operate its on-demand transport service. Bummelbus is a DRT service intended to facilitate the movement of residents in the rural region of northern Luxembourg. With more than 1,000 journeys per day over an area of more than 2,000 square km, it is one of the most in demand DRTs in Europe.

Grand Paris Seine & Oise – Tamy

Tamy is a zonal DRT service, in the town of Mantes-la-Jolie in the Yvelines. Since 2019, in partnership with RATP Dev, Karhoo Pool has enabled users to book their journeys via a mobile application available on iOS and Android.

Annemasse – TAC

Proxi TAC (DRT service) and Handi TAC (Dial A Ride service), both operated by RATP Dev, are the two on-demand services in the city of Annemasse. Karhoo Pool allows the pooling of vehicles for the two services, while keeping the constraints specific to each type of passenger. People with reduced mobility benefit from door-to-door service and DRT passengers use the stop to stop service while in the same vehicle.
