There are, overall, over 100,000 people expected to walk the halls of the Mobile World Congress this year and the bad news about that is the fact that both Cabify and Uber have stopped offering their services in the city due to increased regulations. That leaves Barcelona with only 10,000 taxis and public transit vehicles to carry the influx of visitors.
But there’s someone who though that it can do something about the situation: HERE Mobility decided to give the city of Barcelona a helping hand in navigating the town via their SoMo app. The app allows the riders to compare costs and schedules, all in one single app.
In addition to that, you can also find free rides, grouped by event categories – and that’s with people from your social circles, not complete strangers.
With SoMo, you can book a taxi though local partners such as Taximes, Pide, or Taxi Ecologic and even plan shared rides as one-time events or recurring ones, such as rides to and from the Mobile World Congress.
“SoMo makes it easy to organise rides with co-workers, friends, and family, and MWC, one of the largest conferences in the world, provides the perfect opportunity to showcase the power of social mobility. Whether you live in Barcelona or you’re attending MWC, you’ll find SoMo a seamless, flexible, and user-friendly way to book your taxi and get around together.”
