Need a bus, tram, taxi, car, bike or UFO? Simply pay per ride or with a convenient subscription. Now live in Birmingham, Helsinki, and Antwerp, with more areas following soon.
Whim gives you access to the right mode of transport for every moment. On sunny days, hop on a bike or if you’re you in a hurry, just grab a taxi. Whenever public transport is preferable, get a ticket in just a few taps and if you want to use a car, you always have access to a car without having to worry about insurance, maintenance fees or the commitment of leasing. UFOs are not included yet but they will be added when they become available to the wider public – Whim will always integrate with the latest modes of transport in your city.
Because Whim takes care of route planning and payment for you, you have more time to enjoy life. Best of all, the service itself is free, you only pay for your travels! For example, a taxi trip via Whim will never exceed the old-fashioned meter price.
Beyond having all transport at your disposal on demand, Whim bundles all transport into monthly travel plans to make your life even more convenient. In Helsinki, the world’s first unlimited travel plan is available; this includes unlimited public transport, cars, taxis, bikes and more for a fixed monthly fee.
As a Whim user, you will have access to the full range of transport in every city we launch. When you’re using a Whim subscription, those trips might even be included in your plan! Whim is developing every day, and soon you will be able to use Whim for journeys between different cities, and even different countries. New areas are constantly added, making even far away places easily accessible for you.

In order to provide the service, for example to find bus stops around you or provide a taxi driver the correct pickup location, Whim requires your phone’s location services to be turned on. In order to increase location accuracy, it is highly recommended to also keep Wi-Fi turned on while using the service. Whim uses battery-saving techniques to reduce GPS battery consumption. However, please note that the continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.
Whim is a service of MaaS Global, a young and fast growing company based in Helsinki, Finland. As the world’s first MaaS (Mobility as a Service) operator, MaaS Global will revolutionise the way we move.
Ratings and Reviews
Your app is an inconvenience and i want a full refund!
Had to shell out an extra internal single journey ticket on top of the subscription I paid you because your app didn’t work!

We hope that this problem got solved, when you were in touch with our customer care. Please update the review, if your mind has changed. Sunny days!
Put 4 stars for recently added 3D Touch shortcuts. Otherwise, UX is confusing still - lots of space for improvement.

Hi there, thanks for your review! If you wouldn't mind, we would love to hear your ideas on how we could improve the UX. You can drop us a note in-app or via firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance, the Whim Team.
Could be better
It’s nice that it’s possible to do everything online. But it’s also very uncomfortable as I need to activate tickets every time I need it. Especially when the time runs out and I have to watch it and wait to activate another ticket again. Because if I miss that even 1 minute and get checked then no one cares that I just missed it and tickets are free for me, I still get a fine. 😔 And as someone said already: it uses a lot of battery power. Battery dies really quickly.

Thanks for the review! We are sorry to hear that you are not fully satisfied with Whim. We will have a monthly ticket rather soon, so that will ease the pain with single ticket activation. We know that it's not the smartest way to travel and we are working really hard to get the monthly ticket as soon as possible. So we really understand your thoughts. What comes to the battery usage, Whim uses battery-saving techniques to reduce GPS battery consumption. However, please note that the continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.
