-The VMC team
Blockchain bus pilot to start in November
The Netherlands will be the first country to have an active bus line powered by the VMC CORE Blockchain technology. The total of 12 buses are equipped with VMC hardware terminals and VMC wallets, allowing them to receive VAI coins from VMC’s first users. These will be able to download an app, load their wallet with tokens and to check in and out while travelling. The pilot is the first test phase of a bigger project whereby buses, bikes, trams and trains will be connected to the VMC blockchain. Follow us on our socials to stay up to date. Read more about the blockchain bus and how VMC speeds up the Mobility as a Service landscape.
Mobotiq + VMC
Mobotiq is the first peer-to-peer mobility operator that integrates specifically designed, autonomous pods: safe, comfortable, door-to-door individual transportation. Mobotiq blends supply and demand in one ecosystem, by providing a platform for peers to become prosumers: not only users but also investors, designers, makers. It is a blockchain enabled, tokenized meritocracy, designed as an exponentially scalable platform that empowers peers to collaborate, add value and build business. It is very obvious that Mobotiq and VMC share the same ideals. Together we will explore integration possibilities. More details will be announced later.

SwheelS2Go + VMC
SwheelS2Go is a Dutch startup that offers small electric scooters as a service. Shweels2Go will use our technology to let people discover, book and pay for using their e-scooters. Using VMC gives SwheelS2Go the possibility to easily cooperate with other mobility providers. SwheelS2Go will launch in March 2019. Read more about this partnership.
The team is growing
In order to realise our ambitions we are continuously focusing on expanding the team.

We are very excited to have them on board and built the future of mobility together!
