Kakao Mobility, the leading mobility platform in South Korea, has announced a major revamp of its popular Kakao T app. The app has been transformed into a “portal-type service” that aims to provide a one-stop solution for all transportation needs. The new and improved app boasts an integrated search window that allows users to enter a destination and then compare and reserve various modes of transportation, such as planes, KTX, taxis, navigation, parking, chauffeurs, and rental cars.
The company has also introduced a “My Car Usage” filter that allows users to select their home, workplace, or recently visited destinations, as well as only the modes of transportation necessary for driving their car. The modes of transportation have been sorted by recommendation, shortest travel time, and lowest price for comparison.
In addition, the app now features “Future Travel Information,” which predicts future traffic information at specific times through big data analysis and transportation prediction algorithms. Kakao Mobility CEO Ryu Gyeong-seon said that the company is shifting from a mode of transportation-centered paradigm to a user-centered paradigm, and that the app will continue to innovate to become a partner that can alleviate all concerns and inconveniences related to transportation.
The revamped Kakao T app is set to revolutionize the way people in South Korea travel, offering a comprehensive and user-friendly platform that makes it easy to plan, book and manage trips. With its emphasis on convenience, accuracy and efficiency, the app is sure to be a hit with commuters and travelers alike.
