Facilitating the access to connections, next departures or information on timetable changes via digital devices for young people and visually impaired people.
Since 2018, MVV has been offering a skill for Amazon Alexa for the voice output of timetable information.
Functions of the skill:
- using the signal word “Send me that”, calculated public transport connections are automatically forwarded to the e-mail address stored in the Alexa app, provided the user has given access to it.
- using the signal word “Settings”, users can adapt their connection search to their personal needs (e.g. walking speed, choice of means of transport, routes with few changes, short walking distances).
