Dr. Henrik Haenecke, Board Member & CFO BVG
Dr. Henrik Haenecke has been a member of Berlin’s public transportation agency BVG's Management Board since August 2016, being mainly in charge of finances and digitalization. In this episode of On the Go, we’ll find out how Henrik is working to shift BVG from a traditional public transit company to an innovative mobility platform - with a little help from Trafi! In February 2019, BVG and Trafi announced a new partnership to create a multimodal app covering all types of transportation in Berlin, Jelbi. The idea is simple: one place to access every mode of mobility in the city, from planning to payment. We also discuss the importance of combining the core function of public transport with new modes of mobility, the power of branding and how autonomous vehicles will impact urban transportation.

Alex Zosel, Co-Founder Volocopter
Alex Zosel is the Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Advisor at Volocopter, the world's first autonomous air taxi. Volocopter is the global leader in electrical take off and landing aircrafts (eVTOL), or air taxis to make it a little easier. As early as 2011, the same year as the company was founded, Volocopter earned a safe entry into the history of aviation through manning the world’s first purely electrical multicopter flight. Since then there’s been a rapid progress forward. Tune in to hear about the latest inner city flight tests in Singapore scheduled for later this year, how cities can integrate air taxis into their transportation network and when we will be able to book a Volocopter - at the same cost as taking a cab.
