my­buxi - the al­ter­na­tive taxi

mybuxi is an innovative combination of bus and taxi. The ride service offers maximum flexibility – without needing an own vehicle and at affordable prices. mybuxi vehicles are ordered using the mybuxi app. Users enter the pick-up time and location, as well as the destination, and select the number of passengers. Other passengers who have booked a trip in the same direction can join the ride along the way. Known as pooling, this assures that vehicles are optimally utilised. mybuxi is thus a combination bus (jointly used vehicle) and taxi (on-demand ride). It uses electric cars operated with eco-power. The vehicles can be booked daily from 6 am to 1 am in Andermatt and the surrounding area.
