tim expands to more locations and welcomes 500 customers
LINZ AG LINIEN launches its eighth tim node in the Bindermichl district
The multimodal mobility concept tim (timely. intelligent. mobile.) is continuing to expand. Mayor Klaus Luger, City Councilor Michael Raml, LINZ AG Director General DI Erich Haider and LINZ AG Managing Director Dr.in Jutta Rinner were present at the launch of the new tim node at Bindermichl. A total of eight locations are now available to tim users, where customers have quick and easy access to (e-)carsharing in addition to public transport.
(e-)carsharing, near public transport and more
People living in the Bindermichl and Spallerhof districts will benefit the most from the new tim node, which is located at the Stadlerstraße bus stop for lines 25, 41 and 43. As well as being near public transport, the new node offers stationary (e-)carsharing, rental cars, share taxi pickup points, and parking spaces for bikes.
“The number of tim locations is increasing, as is the number of tim users. I am particularly pleased that more than 500 tim customers are already using its (e-)carsharing services. This demonstrates the interest of the people of Linz in this environmentally friendly form of mobility”, said LINZ AG Managing Director Dr.in Jutta Rinner.
More than 500 tim customers
tim has two reasons to be happy: the mobility service has not only launched its eighth location, it has also recently welcomed its 500th customer. As of the end of June 2021, the mobility service had already gained 515 customers and more than 7,800 bookings. In addition, tim vehicles covered over 485,000 kilometres, which corresponds to circling the globe about 12 times.
“I’ve been using tim’s services since the beginning of June because I don’t own a car and LINZ AG is implementing a great project here. I can use new VW models, such as the ID.3, at a reasonable price, and I can use a tim rental car for longer trips. I appreciate that tim’s locations are close to public transport stops so I can therefore easily switch between public transport and the car. Personally, I would recommend that everyone sign up to tim, whether it’s for a quick shopping run or a trip to the lake, because it is very easy to use: just book and drive!” said Mateo, 19, tim’s 500th customer, who mainly uses the Simonystraße location.
