Village transport in Porvoo and Loviisa
Kyläkyyti, “village ride”, is a new kind of transport service that combines the features of taxi and bus journeys.
The ride is ordered and paid with the Kyyti application downloaded onto a mobile device. The person requesting the ride can specify the pick-up location and the destination, and the trip is combined with others travelling in the same direction.
The Kyläkyyti trial is part of the development project for regional mobility services funded by Sitra, testing new ways of organising mobility services in sparsely populated areas. The trial combines publicly subsidised transport with those who pay for their transport themselves, which enables mobility also for people who do not own a car in rural areas. The costs and emissions from transport will also diminish.
