TakeTwo enhances ground transport content and data

TakeTwo Travel Solutions has formed a strategic partnership with ground transport tech provider Jyrney as part of a tie-up with TripStax.

TakeTwo is the first mutual TMC customer of Jyrney and TripStax, which formed a strategic partnership in February 2023 to integrate Jyrney’s innovative ground transport platform via API to the TripStax Portal module.

It means TakeTwo’s corporate clients can access Jyrney’s ground transport content via TripStax Portal, to book and manage their mobility requirements.

It also means that data from Jyrney bookings can be seamlessly included in traveller itineraries, traveller tracking and approval processes.

Jyrney’s proprietary platform consolidates the traditionally fragmented booking and management of multi-modal ground transport options, including taxi, ride-hail and chauffeur, within a single solution. 

Jyrney works with TMCs, online booking tools and GDSs through white label solutions and APIs, as well as connecting suppliers with corporate customers.

Rob Cope, Chief Technical Officer at TakeTwo, said: “This partnership reflects TakeTwo’s relentless ambition to deliver best-in-class service across the entirety of the trip within our fully-connected Nova technology eco-system.

“The ability to incorporate Jyrney’s ground mobility platform seamlessly via TripStax Portal into our booking flow is transformative for the customer experience. The corporate travel landscape hasn’t fully encompassed the end-to-end trip and all of its touchpoints in a frictionless way, so being able to tightly integrate ground mobility within our eco-system and technology stack is a huge step forward.”

Daniel Price, CEO and co-founder of Jyrney, added: “Ground transport is increasingly becoming an important part of multi-modal trip planning.  In adopting the Jyrney module within TripStax, TakeTwo clients now have integrated ground transport available as part of their booking experience.

“Ground transport is often overlooked within booking platforms, leading to a disjointed customer experience. TakeTwo’s commitment to an integrated first to last mile experience for their customer leads to a safer and more connected travel policy.”
