MOTIONTAG was founded in 2015. Our technology generates and analyzes detailed, real-time data on how individuals travel, covering more than ten modes of transportation. We collect our data through apps where our technology runs in the background fully transparently for the end users (opt-in). By enriching it with external data sets and anonymizing the output, we provide aggregated mobility insights into travel demands.

MOTIONTAG’s team consists of 16 experts in the fields of data science, machine learning, and transportation engineering. Many team members hold advanced degrees in these fields and have years of experience working on mobility-related projects.

The company won multiple awards for its innovative technology and contributions to the mobility industry, e.g., the German Mobility Award, the Smart Move Challenge, the Top 10 of the European Startup Price for Mobility, and many more. Furthermore, it is recognized by leading publications from Die Zeit, Der Spiegel, and Business Insider.

MOTIONTAG’s clients include national rail operators (SBB - Swiss National Rail, Deutsche Bahn), public transport operators (BVG, TPG), cities (Düsseldorf, Aachen), government bodies (BMK Austria, BMBF), universities (ETH Zurich, TU Munich) as well as private companies and research institutes (Swisscom, GfK, infas).

MOTIONTAG technology makes it far more convenient for consumers to participate in travel surveys or donate data to help their cities and authorities collect data in an easy, scalable, and close to real-time manner.

Our data insights help, e.g., (public) transport authorities with fare allocation (Klimaticket Österreich, Alliance Swiss Pass), to improve planning for public transport operators and cities, and to understand the impact of the COVID pandemic on mobility (MOBICOR, MOBIS Covid).

Besides the application in travel surveys, our technology is used in apps that motivate people to move greener by providing engaging feedback on the personal carbon footprint (e.g., Swiss Climate Challenge, Aachen move, Ddorf bewegt).
