And that is how, in the midst of the premiere of free train tickets, it has emerged dōcōthe new comprehensive mobility platform which makes Renfe the first public company to manage door-to-door mobility services, both private and shared transport.

This strange name is the result of the acronym for where and how, and it is nothing more than an app that allows you to plan, book and, through a single payment, use services such as train, metro, bus, taxi, bicycle, VTC, motorcycle or scooter.

At the moment it has not been detailed which companies will be integrated into the new app, which is not yet available. It will also allow you to consult the cheapest routes, the fastest or the most ecological route, explains Renfe.
