In this presentation, we would like to cover Mobility-as-a-Service (platform) in theory and practice.
The mobility ecosystem for urban mobility is currently in a state of flux and is shifting away from the ownership of private vehicles towards shared, on-demand mobility. This new mobility system requires a different organization than the current system. The best way to create a holistic and seamless mobility service experience for travelers is a Mobility-as-a-Service platform, which gathers all means of transportation and provides the user with a single access point for mobility. In the future, every trip will start in the digital environment and will be planned by a digital travel assistant for multimodal trips to achieve the best fit for every customer trip. On the one hand, these platforms require transportation providers to open their APIs to connect to the platform, while on the other hand, there needs to be a mobility operator who is administering the platform and coordinating the services. This also means a business model change for the involved parties that are no longer operating autonomously. Comtrade Digital Services developed a microservice-based MaaS platform that currently supports various functions and runs a car sharing service and a car rental with more services potentially being connected.
