Tampa launches mobility app aimed at simplifying transportation

The City of Tampa is partnering with Moovit to launch a new app as part of a new initiative called Mobility as a Service.

The city is currently searching for 200 volunteers to participate in phase one of the platform’s launch. Anyone interested should email the city’s mobility department at MAAS@TampaGov.net.

The app would connect the city’s various forms of transportation like water taxis, scooters, and other modes into one booking and planning platform so residents could easily map out a trip without relying on a personal car…

Eventually, the city hopes to create a comprehensive platform that would allow residents to book and pay for transportation in one place. They also hope it will help cut down on transportation costs for families.
