Mobility as a Service specialist MaaS Global, the company behind the Whim app, has bought Spanish mobility start-up Wondo.

Wondo is backed by Spanish transportation infrastructure group Ferrovial.

“Ferrovial is very pleased to join forces with MaaS Global to develop a winning value-added proposition in the MaaS space," says Andres Camacho Donezar, director of mobility at Ferrovial.

"This is another step in the strategy of the company to be at the centre of the changes that are transforming the shape of urban mobility."

“The acquisition of Wondo enables us to rapidly expand to new markets and increase our B2B and B2C service offering," says MaaS Global founder and CEO Sampo Hietanen.

"MaaS is a business of a critical mass and it requires volume and gravity. This transaction is a prime example that the consolidation of the MaaS industry is now taking place, and we intend to continue playing an active role in it."

Ion Cuervas-Mons, CEO of Wondo, says the move will "contribute to the creation of the leading global MaaS platform".
