Mobility app Turnn aims to keep the world accessible – starting with Brainport Eindhoven

Everybody wants to be somewhere at the same time, with the same means of transport. The result: congestion everywhere, lots of frustration and higher costs. Turnn wants to change that.

Some days, even in times of COVID-19, the world seems to be one huge traffic jam. Everybody wants to be somewhere at the same time, with the same means of transport. The result: congestion everywhere, lots of frustration and higher costs. Turnn wants to change that for the better – with an app that combines the advantages of public transport with shared personal mobility means like cars, scooters and bicycles.

For a user, the app promises the certainty of fast and comfortable transport, with all the necessary means of mobility, and easily paid for afterward. With the combined mobility offer, the ideal of Mobility-as-a-Service could become accessible to large groups of people. The app will first be piloted in the Brainport Eindhoven region. After a successful introduction, the idea is to roll it out further. Initiator Dirk Grevink, Turnn’s CEO, says he saw similar initiatives elsewhere in Europe, “but in the Netherlands we are ahead of the curve in this development”.

According to Grevink, this has everything to do with the circumstances, in which, for example, data from the national Public Transport chip card, Amber’s shared cars and Go Sharing can be brought together in one comprehensive dashboard.
