ŠKODA AUTO taking steps in its transformation from purely a car manufacturer to a provider of integral mobility services, has merged its carsharing portal HoppyGo with the mobility services provider SmileCar from Czech transportation company Leo Express.
This step would allow the private car carsharing to be combined with bus and rail transport. The customers now can book and pay for everything offered by the one-stop mobility services provider using a single smartphone app. The joint venture makes HoppyGo one of the largest carsharing providers in the Czech Republic.
As HoppyGo remains a brand of the ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab, ŠKODA AUTO has also become one of the largest providers of peer-to-peer car sharing in the Czech Republic.
The ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab first established the carsharing provider HoppyGo in Prague and has since built it into one of the largest private carsharing portals in the Czech Republic.
In addition to various ŠKODA models, the carpool also includes vehicles from other brands. Now, HoppyGo users can also have the app suggest multimodal travel arrangements – meaning several modes of transport can be combined. After long bus or train journeys, a private car can be rented at the destination with ease.
