In Czechia you can travel from door to door without needing to own a car

Customers of Skoda DigiLab and rail and coach operator RegioJet in the Czech Republic can travel from door to door with ease without needing to own a car.

For journeys from their homes to a coach or train station, or from there on to their destination, RegioJet customers can now hire a BeRider eScooter and/or a vehicle from the HoppyGo peer-to-peer car-sharing service.

How it works

When purchasing a RegioJet coach or train ticket, customers can register for Skoda DigiLab’s eScooter-sharing service, BeRider.

Following confirmation, they will be emailed a code which entitles them to use the city scooters free of charge for 60 minutes.

BeRider has just started its second season in Prague and the number of users is growing: the eScooters have already covered a total of over 500.000 km and, to date, 80.000 people have downloaded the app.

RegioJet and Skoda DigiLab have then incorporated the HoppyGo private peer-to-peer car-sharing service in a similar way.

Newly registered HoppyGo users receive a 500-koruna credit for travelling with RegioJet that they can use to rent a car.

Customers can, for example, make their way to the station using a shared car, park it there in a planned allocated space and continue their journey by coach or train.
