Based on the HaCon Kids App, which utilises child-friendly innovations, the new mobility app, ‘VBB jump’, presented by Berlin-Brandenburg public transport authority VBB, will begin helping a younger user group to travel from door to door – a first step toward safer travel for kids.

The HaCon Kids App’s main feature is the simple and intuitive user interface tailored to meet the needs and abilities of younger passengers. Developed through qualitative analyses, interviews at schools in Berlin and extensive usability tests, the new application has been approved by numerous children and their parents.


VBB Managing Director, Susanne Henckel, added: “We want to get children excited about bus and rail travel at an early age and support them as much as possible. Sometimes it might be quite complex to navigate through our transport system. ‘VBB jump’ makes digital trip planning a breeze and paves the way for children to quickly and easily get around.”
