Transdev in France develops transport on demand solutions for the elderly, people with disabilities and, more recently, for travelers via SuperShuttle in Paris.
Travelers taking the plane or train to depart for their summer holidays will find the SuperShuttle solution, an innovative response from the United States, particularly suited to their needs: grouped transport requests allow travel between the home, hotel or office and one of Paris’ three airports (Charles de Gaulle, Orly, Beauvais) or seven train stations.
- Practical: 24h/7, the shuttle picks up at building entrances, reservations can be made online or via smartphones and on-board WiFi allows passengers to stay connected.
- Economical: The cost of the trip is shared with other passengers.
Transdev’s shared transport, which this year celebrates 30 years of service in the U.S. with eight million passengers annually from or to 33 U.S. airports, has now started to develop in Europe, beginning with Paris and Amsterdam.
In June, bookings for SuperShuttle Paris have already increased +40% over last year. In view of these good results, the Transdev subsidiary projects total annual traffic of 250,000 passengers by the end of 2013, reflecting a significant increase in both Parisians and tourists, especially travelers from the U.S. happy to find the same service here as at home.
An advertising campaign “Your shared chauffeur to the airport!” will appear this summer on both the web and on the back of SuperShuttle vehicles, encouraging even more travelers to partake of this economic VIP service.
