The European Mobility-as-a-Service Alliance has been launched

The European Mobility-as-a-Service Alliance has been launched


20 European organisations join forces to establish the first Mobility as a Service (MaaS) Alliance. This new initiative will work towards a truly European and common approach to MaaS through public and private stakeholder cooperation, providing the basis for the economy of scale needed for a successful implementation in Europe.
 
The key concept behind MaaS is to put the users, both travelers and goods, at the core of transport services, offering them tailor made mobility solutions based on their individual needs. This means that, for the first time, easy access to the most appropriate transport mode or service will be included in a bundle of flexible travel service options for end users.
 
The MaaS Alliance builds upon the momentum and drive achieved during the last European ITS Congress in 2014 hosted by Helsinki, where MaaS received political support from the Finnish government. “MaaS is a new approach to changing mobility markets. It relies on existing and developing transport services and has huge chance for global scaling”, says the father of the concept Sampo Hietanen, CEO of ITS Finland.
 
According to Rasmus Lindholm, ERTICO’s Director of Communications and Partnership Development: ”MaaS has the potential to fundamentally change the behavior of people in and beyond cities, hence it is regarded as the biggest paradigm change in transport since affordable cars came into the market”.
 
Founding Partners of the Mobility as a Service Alliance include Aalborg University, AustriaTech,  Ericsson, ERTICO – ITS Europe, Federation International de l’Automobile (FIA) Region I, Finnish Ministry of Transport and Communications, Helsinki Business Hub, IRU, Connekt, ITS Finland, ITS Sweden, ITS Ukraine, MOBiNET, National Mobile Payment Plc. (Hungary), Swedish Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation, Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation (Tekes), Transport for London, Vinnova, University of Tampere and Xerox.
 
"Bundling services to simplify access to mobility is a key step to ensure the best use of all modes of transport. FIA Region I call upon the transport community to develop and combine these services based on the public’s concrete needs. In the FIA, we believe mobility must be safe, sustainable, accessible and affordable for all”, says Jacob Bangsgaard Director General FIA Region I.
 
Due to its open nature, the MaaS Alliance welcomes other Partners to join. This would contribute to the success of this new joint venture, as it will allow taking the needs of all stakeholders into account.
The official launch event will take place in the Finnish Pavilion (C37) at the ITS World Congress, in Bordeaux on Tuesday 6 October 2015 at 13.00. This inaugural ceremony will include the participation of:
 

  • Anne Berner, Minister of Transport and Communications, Finland;
  • Jacob Bangsgaard, Director General of FIA Region I and
  • Richard Harris, Director of Communication and Marketing at Xerox.

ITS Hackathon in Bordeaux

The ITS Hackathon took place at the ITS World Congress in Bordeaux, from Tuesday 6 to Thursday 8 October 2015, and it was co-organised by the MOBiNET project and Michelin Bibendum Challenge, in partnership with eSafety Aware and FIA. The Hackathon invited academics from universities and research centres, start-ups, app developers and service providers to develop innovative services and applications using the MOBiNET platform and the data sources and services that the Platform provides.

The participants used the MOBiNET platform facilities and worked on real case studies in order to find solutions to existing problems. The participants received technical support by representatives of the MOBiNET consortium, such as DLR, ICCS and Aalborg University. The ITS Hackathon basic goal was to make the team work on a European dimension, thus facilitating the development of a large shared mobility e-marketplace. It was focused in two different areas: Intelligent Mobility (sponsored by MOBiNET) and Road Safety (sponsored by eSafetyAware).

Winners of the ITS Hackathon received monetary prizes and the opportunity to develop their concept into an operational service and demonstrate it at the European ITS Congress in Glasgow in 2016.

The Jury, which included representatives of Michelin, ERTICO, FIA, Allianz Global Telematics, ITS Finland,HERE, Glasgow City and Uber, declared as winners the following:

- Bobby (10,000 euro and incubation): an application that becomes a personal assistant and sends via SMS, traffic information and delays on the bus or train, while it allows the user to book parking or bike sharing, so as to facilitate and speed up the daily commute (for example, the route from home to work etc.).

- AllGreen (10,000 euro) is an app that monitors the vehicle's speed and the rate of emission of C02 in a fun way, suggesting a way to drive more carefully and responsibly.

- Sensity (3 x months incubation): is a kind of social mobility, or in other words a collaborative platform for sharing behaviors and mobility experiences. Members have the opportunity to vote geotagged mobility services. It also lets you organize events between people who are located at the same area or who are making the same trip and share route information based on feedback and user ratings.
