Dutch MaaS app, Gaiyo announces its launch in a new country

Less than six months after acquiring Mobility Mixx, Gaiyo continues to expand its operations. As evidenced by its recent press release, the Dutch MaaS application announced the official launch in a neighboring country. Belgium, to be precise. This decision is a result of a carefully considered strategy, as revealed by CEO Lucien Groenhuijzen…

“Belgium, a Logical Next Step”

These are the words used in Gaiyo’s press release. Launched in 2022, the application has become a benchmark for MaaS in the Netherlands over time. With an impressive 600% growth in the Dutch individual mobility market in 2022, Gaiyo is relentlessly expanding its activities, to the point of venturing into the Belgian market. This decision goes beyond mere geographical proximity. As highlighted by Lucien Groenhuijzen, CEO of Gaiyo, Belgium was already an active market for numerous mobility partners, which facilitated their decision to establish a presence there.

In addition to our current partners, such as TIER for electric bikes and scooters, Cargoroo for electric cargo bikes, ParkBee for parking, and Donkey Republic for electric bicycles, Gaiyo has also formed partnerships with local public transportation providers, including the Flemish public transport company De Lijn.

Continuously expanding its partner network…

As you all know, the strength of a MaaS application lies in its ability to convince a maximum number of mobility partners. With more than twenty mobility providers in its arsenal, Gaiyo excels in this regard. Its multimodal offering has been further enriched with the addition of Felyx and Greenwheels. These two new partnerships have significantly expanded Gaiyo’s range of shared mobility services. He reinforced its geographic coverage and enabled Dutch citizens to travel to Belgium seamlessly using the application, and vice versa.

“By expanding our services into Belgium and adding Felyx and Greenwheels to our partners, we are on track to fulfill our commitment to reduce CO2 emissions by 70,000 tonnes over the next five years.”
