Great Britain’s first ‘anywhere to anywhere’ travel app has been launched to reward people with money-saving vouchers for travelling green, using public transport, walking or cycling. The free-to-use app, called Sojo, has been created by Swiss global innovators, Axon Vibe in partnership with UK-based Raileasy the split ticket consumer champions.
George Sikking, Chief Executive of Raileasy said, “With 92%* of Brits thinking about how they can save money and 75%** concerned about climate change we just knew that there was a marketplace for something which would tackle both. Sojo is an absolute win-win, rewarding people financially for saving the earth’s natural resources. We think that the climate conscious people of Great Britain will love it”.
Sojo GB is Great Britain’s first nationwide sustainable travel, incentives & rewards app, is free to use and, once you’ve given it your permission, it intelligently transforms your journeys into rewards without your data being seen by or sold to anyone. The app works anonymously behind the scenes and, as a thank you for choosing to travel sustainably, it will trigger vouchers from retail partners providing offers such as a free coffee, a pastry or other exclusive clothing & leisure deals all offered in the context of your regular journeys.
Jeremy Acklam, Managing Director of Axon Vibe in the UK said, “We are thrilled to have collaborated with Raileasy. We firmly believe that Sojo is the solution which will benefit thousands of travellers across Great Britain. Our global Sojo Initiative incentivises people to travel more responsibly and helps to reduce the effects of climate change as they go about their regular lives”, he continued, “The Sojo GB app offers cost savings to encourage people back onto the rail network and personalised rewards which will help High Street businesses thrive”.
The app enables seamless journey planning from door to door, and you can buy a great value rail ticket, hire a bike or book a taxi, where available, across the whole country. Over 4 continents, in Cities like New York and Tokyo, Sojo has already demonstrated the behaviour change that is so vital to the future of the planet, and it is now available in Great Britain.
To access the app simply go to your preferred app store and download Sojo GB.
