Ponooc acquires stake in the Tranzer mobility platform

Ponooc has acquired a significant stake in Tranzer. The scale-up that was established three years ago offers travelers the possibility to plan, book and pay for traveling by public transport, taxi and bicycle with one clear app. In Europe there are more than 100,000 users of the app. The Ponooc investment contributes to Tranzer’s ambition to become the European market leader in Mobility as a Service (MaaS).

Tranzer was born out of the idea of ​​making traveling by public transport, taxi, bicycle
or shared car more accessible for occasional travelers, such as people who do not
have an OV chip card or have no experience with traveling in the country where they
are at that moment. The scale-up now also serves parties who, with the use of
Tranzer, make a flexible way of traveling possible for their users like KLM, WeChat,
WeGoEuro en TravelCard.

Paul Rooijmans of Tranzer: “Travelers find it increasingly important to have a flexible
choice when it comes to the type of transport. To meet that need, partners such as
leasing companies, providers of fuel cards and event organizations can integrate our
services with their own systems, giving their users access to all public transport,
including taxis, bicycles and shared cars. Since this year, Tranzer has been selected
for the MasterCard Startpath Program that will certainly help us to roll out planning
and paying worldwide in public transport.”

Trust in Mobility as a Service
In order to continue to meet the mobility needs of travelers and employers, Tranzer is
constantly evolving. Thanks to Ponooc’s investment, the platform can scale up faster
so that more countries and cities can connect. Paul Rooijmans of Tranzer: “We are
very happy with the confidence that Ponooc has in us. Ponooc maintains close ties
with Pon Holdings, an international innovative player in the field of mobility with many
years of service. We expect a lot of synergy with Pon and we look forward to a good
collaboration.”

Friso Bensdorp of Ponooc: “We believe in the future of Mobility as a Service (MaaS);
planning, booking and paying for different types of transport within an app. Tranzer
has proven itself as a forerunner in this. It is an ambitious party with a clear vision
and a great deal of knowledge in the field of public transport and mobility. We think it
is important that Tranzer can realize its growth ambitions. We would like to be part of
this.”
