Doing what GoEuro is attempting to do, collecting and structuring all the data necessary to bring all of these varied transportation modes together, is harder to do than squeezing into a rush-hour subway in Times Square. But, someone's got to do it.
GoEuro raised $27 million in a Series A funding round designed to expand its rail, bus and flight search platform to additional European countries.
New Enterprise Associates led the round with participation from existing investors Battery Ventures, Hasso Plattner Ventures and Lakestar.
GoEuro is part of a trend that includes sites such as Rome2Rio that try to bring online and to mobile parts of the transportation sector, such as bus, rail and car, that have long been neglected as a means of providing complete trip options.
These multi-modal transportation search sites are geared to save travelers time and money by enabling them to find all their options on one site instead of having to search through numerous ones for comprehensive options.
GoEuro currently operates in Germany, the UK, Spain, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, and plans to use the funding infusion to execute on its goal of becoming “the largest multi-mode travel platform across the Continent,” the company states.
