Here Mobility has partnered with Booking.com to organise rides to or from airports via the travel firm's app in over 800 cities worldwide.

Here aggregates all transportation options, including taxis and private hires, connecting real-time transportation supply with rider demand, with live driver tracking.

“Mobility as a Service is now more important than ever before, both in daily life and when travelling abroad, as people seek to get from door to door safely and efficiently,” said Liad Itzhak, head of Here Mobility. 

Here Mobility was launched as a business unit of Here Technologies in 2018.

Transportation suppliers from Europe, the US and Latin America have joined its marketplace, with more than 2.5 million vehicles operational in 100 cities worldwide including Los Angeles, Chicago, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bogota and Sao Paolo.

Booking.com aims to give travellers a single platform which they can use to book, pay for and manage all aspects of every trip, from accommodation and transport to experiences and attractions.

Users can pick up a rental car in over 160 countries, hail a ride in eight south-east Asian markets and - through a pilot project - buy and use public transport tickets in 26 cities across the world.
