Leicester City Council has unveiled a journey planning app as part of its effort to develop mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) within the city.

Named Choose How You Move, it has been developed under a contract with technology company SkedGo as part of a partnership between the city and Leicestershire County Council, funded by the Department for Transport.

It provides information on public transport, e-bikes from Santander Cycles, Park and Ride spaces, taxis, cycling and walking routes.

Harvey Blundell, Leicester’s assistant transport development officer, said: “By breaking down the barriers to sustainable transport, and by making alternative modes and multi-modal journeys as accessible as possible, we are delivering on our commitments to address the climate emergency and to reduce air pollution, while also making the city a better place to live, work, and visit."

The app is available in Android and iPhone versions.
