About us

Who we are

We, the MENTZ GmbH, offer software solutions for public transport. These are examples for journey planners operated with our products:


Our goal is to support sustainable mobility for all means of transport. No matter if this means public transport, walking, biking or a combination of all of them in the form of intermodal transport. Furthermore the topic of barrier free mobility is of great importance to us. On behalf of the German federal states (Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate, North Rhine-Westphalia, Lower Saxony, Saxony, Mecklenburg Vorpommern) and a range of public transport authorities and operators we are currently working on the further development of intemodal journey planners. Our clients have a strong interest in using OSM data as basis for transport information. We want to help them with that.
