New Shotl Experience in Barcelona

On Friday 8th June, Shotl gave dozens of people in Barcelona the opportunity to try an on-demand bus service.  

Among the passengers were transport-planners, policymakers, and public transport service users, all of whom participated in the ‘Shotl Experience’, a one-day showcase of the Shotl plattform. The event was organized as part of the annual gathering of the PTP Association, a local non-profit that’s devoted to the encouragement of sustainable transportation. 

During the event, an on-demand shuttle service connected the venue with three different subway stations; providing a real-time demand responsive transport solution to enhance the overall commuting experience.

As Ricard Riol, president of the PTP Association, said: “It was great to have Shotl with us at the event. We thought that offering an on-demand shuttle was an excellent opportunity to show how public transport can cover more and more areas in the future. With this technology it is possible to cover a greater area while keeping low waiting and travel times for users, by reducing the ‘empty kilometers’ traveled in comparison to a traditional bus line”.

This event was part of a series of showcases that Shotl organizes periodically. If you’re interested in hosting a ‘Shotl Experience’ in the near future please contact us at hello@shotl.com.
