Flinkster Campus was implemented as a start-up project of the Trier University of Applied Sciences, in cooperation with Flinkster, the car-sharing service of Deutsche Bahn subsidiary DB Rent. As part of the project, we developed a car-sharing service especially for students - including social media integration and all the functions of a car sharing service.

A GOOD IDEA:
CAR SHARING FOR STUDENTS

The project: Along with the joys of driving, the running expenses of owning a car are high, the use is however mostly  sporadic, wear and repairs must be taken into account. However, students in large university cities only need a car from time to time, many things are done by bus, train or by bicycle. However, in order to enable the students of Trier University to accelerate their motions, Flinkster Campus was developed.

The start-up project is a co-operation with Flinkster car-sharing of DB Rent and purpose-built for the mobile needs of students. Flinkster Campus is available at two locations of the University of Applied Sciences Trier, in addition it is available at nationwide tariff at Trier main station. This is an ideal solution to be flexible and inexpensively have a car at hand whenever water boxes are too heavy, furniture too bulky and bus or train stops too far away.

NEW FEATURES:
SOCIAL MEDIA AND CAR SHARING AGENCY

The app: To inspire a young, media-savvy target group some cleverness was needed. That's why we've added additional features to the existing Smartphone app: Via Flinkster Campus, cars can be booked, but there is also a direct interface to social media services like Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to share photos, videos, experiences and adventures. In addition, the app offers all the features of a car-sharing agency: from verification of a driver via SMS, negotiating the journey, to the notification via push message.

MADE BY STUDENTS
FOR STUDENTS

The development process: In developing the app, we wanted to pick up students with a practical, modern and creative solution. For this reason, close co-operation with the students was particularly important. The university and industry partners such as DB Rent also made it possible to combine new concepts and proven technologies in an agile experimental car-sharing project.
