SkedGo was born out of the need to create smarter ways for people to travel. Starting with TripGo, we invented a trip planning app that can do so much more than what meets the eye. We are constantly questioning the status quo and take an active role in shaping future transport needs and features.

Who is behind SKEDGO?
SkedGo was started in 2009 by three founders with previous successful exits and has offices in Australia (HQ), Vietnam, Argentina, Germany, Finland and the UK.
SkedGo provides personalised trip planning and mobility as a service technology, for leading start-ups, corporations, and governments. Their senior developer team offers tailored solutions leveraging the TripGo API. The result: organisations can seamlessly and rapidly integrate mixed/multi model transport services, parking, book & pay features, events and itineraries.
CEO and Co-founder Claus von Hessberg started SkedGo to address social and environmental challenges, with focus on Mobility as a Service and transportation. He was nominated as one of the Top Ten Mobility as a Service Influencers by industry publication BusinessMaaS. CTO and Co-founder Adrian Schoenig leads the development teams at SkedGo. He has a background in information systems and computer science, with a major in artificial intelligence. Co-founder Dr Tim Cooper holds a PhD in Computer Science from Sydney University.

“Routing has become commoditised with users spoilt for free choices. The next value add is predictive transport personalisation, to serendipitously serve trips that match where, how, when and with who a user wants to go. That will open the gates to deeper online-offline coordination socially and professionally, save time, money and carbon.”Claus von Hessberg, SkedGo founder
