Brussels has introduced a single app that consolidates all local mobility services, making Floya a valuable tool for your next visit to the Belgian capital.
Floya, the latest mobile app from the city of Brussels, is designed to cater to the needs of both residents and tourists. Launched recently, this app seamlessly integrates Mobility as a Service (MaaS) by aggregating all public and private transportation options into one user-friendly platform – right on your smartphone.
This digital tool is a collaborative effort between STIB-MIVB, the local public transit operator, and Brussels Mobility. Together, they aim to enhance flexibility and responsiveness in addressing mobility requirements while encouraging users to shift away from personal vehicles in favor of the diverse range of transportation choices now accessible.
Gone are the days of cluttering your phone with numerous mobility apps. Floya empowers users to effortlessly plan, book, and pay for various transportation modes within Brussels. Currently, it encompasses the four primary public transportation modes (metro, trams, buses, and trains), as well as various shared scooter, bicycle, and car services. Additionally, it offers the capability to unlock shared mobility devices post-payment and provides real-time information about disruptions or alternate routes.
As a result, this new app represents an expansion and enhancement of the STIB-MIVB app, intelligently integrating options from the private sector. Its overarching objective is to present Brussels’ mobility services as a unified ecosystem, regardless of the economic interests of individual branches.
Brussels’ mobility landscape is continually evolving, and Floya is expected to evolve alongside it. A range of exciting new features is in the pipeline, promising users even more choices and convenience.
