Pour ce faire, Padam Mobility propose une suite logicielle de solutions intelligentes et flexibles qui améliorent auprès de tous les publics l’impact des politiques de mobilité là où la demande est peu dense. Pour mettre en mouvement les usagers, les opérateurs et les collectivités.

En mai 2021, Siemens Mobility, leader mondial dans le domaine du transport public, acquiert la société pour soutenir sa croissance, et dans la perspective de compléter son offre de transport intermodal.

Leader en Europe, Padam Mobility est un partenaire de confiance des autorités organisatrices dont Ile-de-France Mobilités et le Sytral en France, Lincolnshire County Council en Angleterre, ainsi que des opérateurs de transport : la Deutsche Bahn, Keolis, Transdev, Busitalia, etc…
