Development of business units
Digitalization and innovation
- Maas (Mobility as a Service) is a growing development in the Netherlands and combines all types of transport on a single app to meet the needs of customers wanting to travel. A pilot, led by DB Arriva, has been announced for Limburg and will be introduced in summer 2020. The app enables customers to plan, book and pay for a trip at the same time.
- DB Arriva has been involved in trials of ATO (Automatic Train Operations) technology. In February 2020, 250 passengers tested a DB Arriva train with ATO level 2 automation. This was the first test with passengers in the Netherlands. The expectation is that ATO can improve punctuality, reduce fuel consumption and improve the comfort of travelers.
