One of the fastest growing Croatian start-ups, a bus-ticket platform that enables easy search, comparison and purchase of bus tickets Vollo, and the well-known global technology platform Uber, which has been present on the Croatian market for a little over a year, joined forces and under the motto “Where one journey ends, another begins”, agreed on a partnership that will simplify and delight many users this fall and winter. .The concept of intermodal transport, which takes advantage of the use of different means of transport, was also the guiding thought of creating a partnership between Uber and Volla, companies that are known on the technology scene and beyond, as drivers of innovation in their business segment. Precisely because of this, the collaboration itself imposed itself as natural. “This is the first step towards full Intermodal Transport where in the future technology platforms such as Uber and Vollo, and autonomous vehicles and buses will completely change the existing concept of owning a car or the experience of traveling by public transport”Said Marko Jukić, founder of Volla.Vollo in addition to cooperating with Uber, has already integrated Fflixbus (unofficial Uber for bus transport), Eurolines and hundreds of other bus carriers as well as BlaBlaCar, the world ‘s largest transportation sharing platform. I know that the “revolution” may sound a little too much, but just go back five or ten years and look at the state of passenger transport back then. Yes, we are witnessing a real revolution in transport transport that is happening in Croatia, and this form of intermodal transport and integration of all partners is, as far as I know, the first of its kind in the world.By purchasing a bus ticket on the Vollo platform, Uber gives new users a free ride to the station for up to 65 kn, and vice versa; all new Vollo users are honored with a discount of up to HRK 35 on the cancellation of the booking fee upon the first purchase. Bearing in mind that tickets purchased through the Vollo platform are already on average 10-25% cheaper than the regular prices from the station, this is really a discount that is not negligible.Apart from the city of Zagreb, the action is also valid for the cities of Split, Zadar and Dubrovnik, and Wall announces that this is only the first of the cooperation they plan to launch in this type of transport. Considering that in less than 6 months of existence they have connected over 20 countries, united over 150 carriers from Croatia and Europe, made over 70 connections and more than 000 million route combinations, we are looking forward to the news they are preparing for us!
