The Bratislava Transport Company (DPB) and the alternative taxi service Hopin have been working together on a technological novelty for travellers in Bratislava. They have prepared an updated version of the Hopin taxi app, which apart from a new design and logo contains a profile to make travel across the city easier. The Slovak-English app offers a complete map of all stops with timetables, a route planner and live bus and tram locations.

“The mobile app is another step towards Smart Bratislava,” said Bratislava Mayor, Ivo Nesrovnal, when introducing the new app, adding that this mobile application interconnects the taxi service with other means of transportation.

Hopin was the first taxi application in Slovakia. It was launched in 2012 and nowadays it has more than 100,000 users. Its design has not changed until now.

“The main reason for these changes is our long-term vision,” said Martin Baran, co-owner of Hopin. “We did not want to be perceived as just a taxi service. Now Hopin is a transportation app, which will make the movement of people in the city easier.”

Part of the updated app is the LIMO profile designed for more demanding clients. Compared to Hopin’s basic TAXI profile this offers high-end vehicles and high-standard client service.
