Improving access to integrated transport services

Go-Hi is a groundbreaking Mobility as a Service (MaaS) platform, launched in June 2021 by the Highlands and Islands Transport Partnership (HITRANS). Its aim is to improve accessibility to integrated transport services for residents, tourists and business travellers in Scotland’s Highlands and Islands regions and beyond.

The free-to-use app integrates multiple transport and travel options into one platform, providing more reliable journey planning capabilities, easier access to travel information, in-app ticketing and a hassle-free payment system.

Powered by award-winning Mobility as a Service technology

The Go-Hi app, developed in partnership with leading MaaS technology firm Mobilleo, allows users to plan, book and pay for an end-to-end, multimodal journey in a single transaction using their smartphone or desktop device.

The platform offers instant access to buses, trains, ferries, taxis, car clubs, car rental, bike hire, flights, demand responsive transport (DRT) and hotels to allow users to plan bespoke door-to-door journeys with ease.

Seamless integrations with leading transport partners

Go-Hi has seamless booking and payment integrations with a range of leading transport and travel partners including Enterprise Car Club and Car Hire, Bewegen, Brompton Bike Hire, Stagecoach Bus, West Coast Motors, ScotRail, Loganair, Orkney Ferries, Northlink Ferries, Liftango, Inverness Taxis, Leeds Institute for Transport Studies and SkedGo.

Supported by the Scottish Government

The Go-Hi project is being funded by the EU North Sea Region Stronger Combined project and the Scottish Government’s MaaS Investment Fund. The MaaS Investment Fund was established by Transport Scotland to improve accessibility to public transport services for residents and visitors in the Highlands and Islands.

Encouraging a shift to more sustainable travel options

Go-Hi is addressing Government ambitions to reduce carbon emissions by encouraging a modal shift from sole occupancy cars to shared cars and public transport alternatives.

Go-Hi is also reducing the feeling of isolation among those without access to a car and creating healthier lifestyles by improving the sustainable travel choices people can make in the region, including active travel opportunities.

Delivering Scotland’s transport strategy

The Go-Hi project supports the delivery of Transport Scotland’s National Transport Strategy, which recognises the importance of embracing new technologies that are beneficial to society.

The technology will help Scotland to become an international leader in smart mobility by supporting digital innovation within Scotland and offering good practice in the application of MaaS for other similar regions.
