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.
