Shotl is a mobility platform that empowers transport operators to supply on-demand bus services by matching multiple passengers headed in the same direction with a moving vehicle. The solution has been conceived to supplant inefficient bus lines or to improve existing shared transport services in business parks and corporations.

Shotl helps cities and corporations make better use of its bus systems by replacing low-ridership routes with on-demand bus in order to lead a progressive transition from a car-based culture towards a driverless integrated mobility.

Shotl platform consists in three powerful applications working seamlessly together:

-User App (Android and iOS)

-Driver App (Android and iOS)

-Management module (web tool)

Powerful backend algorithms are able to match users in shared vehicles as per their origins and destinations.

Sustainability Plan (500 characters)

Yes, 100% We have built a robust bottom-up sales forecast based on our initial activities (first sales of ShotlPlatform 1.0) with Early Adopters. We estimate more engagement of all types of end-users thanks to market growth. Margins will vary across our small service portfolio (ShotlPlatform 1.0 and 2.0) because they have different price, risks, operating costs and marketing demands. ShotlPlatform 2.0 will allow us a short-term growth opportunity and take the Mobility on-demand market leadershi
