Mobility must be rethought
To slow down climate change a shift towards Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is urgently needed. But for this to happen at large scale, it needs to be uncomplicated and efficient in any possible way.
Competition & no Completion
With the rise of MaaS also comes the risk of cannibalization of public transport services by the increasingly profit-driven private operators. Many cities lack control, resources and tools to keep their services attractive and competitive.
Uncoordinated & Unregulated
The early MaaS market is inhomogeneous and lacking technical standards. The result a huge proliferation of incompatible platforms and isolated mobility solutions.
Services can not fully unfold and negatively affects the image of MaaS.
Overwhelming & Unmanageable
With the increasing number of solutions and apps, MaaS is becoming more complex instead of simpler for the end user. Most platforms are still incompatible amongst each other and still do not support roaming as known from mobile phone tariffs.
MaaS must be orchestrated
Cities should take the lead and orchestrate MaaS at the local level and offer a compatible MaaS app to their customers.
