Popular Trips with DPP to Be Available Also on Mobile Equipment

In Prague, August 19, 2011 – The booklet called “110 výletů s Dopravním podnikem hl. m. Prahy (DPP) (110 Trips with DPP – the Prague Public Transport Company), offering readers tips for excursions in and around Prague using its public transport network has been very well received. That is why DPP has decided to prepare for its passengers an application designed to help them in planning trips in their iPhone or other mobile equipment.

 

The mobile application “33 výletů/(Prague Trips)“ will be available to users of iPhone 3GS and 4, iPod 4.0 and higher as well as users of iPad in Czech and English. The English version can be bought now in the Internet shop AppStore. The application costs 3.99 EUR.

“We decided to cater for the great demand and still further to simplify our offer of potential trips to passengers. iPhone and similar equipment are experiencing a great boom. In the first stage, we plan to create a package of mobile trips for foreign tourists, its Czech version will be available by the end of September. If successful, the application will be expanded also for other types of the so-called smart phones,“ said Mrs. Ilona Vysoudilová, DPP´s spokesperson.

In addition to a standard description of each trip, which can also be found in the printed booklet, the application using Google Maps enables users to depict their routes. The application is connected with the social network Facebook – in this way users may inform their friends or place the route of their favourite trip on Facebook. In the future, DPP envisages an increase in the number of trips for the mobile equipment, if the current application proves to attract public interest.
