SEAT pilots shared mobility initiative
SEAT has partnered with start-up Shotl and transport operator Moventis to test a shuttle service for a month near Barcelona.
The month-long pilot is running between the neighbourhood of Can Barata and the Volpalleres train station, using a SEAT Alhambra to provide an on-demand shuttle service.
Users can request the service through the Shotl app, which will also inform them of the estimated waiting time and arrival time at their destination.
This pilot follows a scheme in early 2017 by CARNET, a vehicle and urban mobility research hub created by SEAT, Volkswagen Group Research and the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC), which aims to explore future mobility concepts and solutions in Barcelona, which saw users shuttled to their destination together with other commuters with a similar route.
