How to make MaaS (Mobility as a Service) reality?

I’m just on my way from Berlin, where I had the privilege to give a keynote speech at the Wocomoco conference. Wocomoco – as it can be seen by its name – is not just a usual conference on mobility services, but really tries to bring new, innovative and different perspectives to the table from around the globe – many great speakers and ideas, lots of great discussions, and an excellent opportunity for me to reflect.

AMAZON FOR TRAVEL AS A DISRUPTOR OF LCC BUSINESS MODEL

Introduction

My recent visit to Aviation Festival in London convinced me again that airlines now understand the importance of digital technology to their business. There is no C-level presentation anymore without citing digital as a strategic priority. However, when it comes to the next level of detail, the clarity disappears. It is obvious that digital technology brings non-linear changes which are simply not understood well by many of the players in the airline space. Humans are simply not very good at dealing with non-linear thinking.

Life without a privately-owned car

Posted by Marko Javornik on Apr 13, 2017 5:30:44 PM

I had the pleasure of speaking at the Singapore ITS Summit 2017, which has just concluded. Singapore is such an amazing country that offers so much to learn from. While we are working hard in Europe to create mobility services that would get rid of the second and third family car, 55% of households in Singapore do not own a car at all. There are about 100 privately owned cars per 1,000 citizens compared to 500 cars in Europe. The country’s efforts to decrease the number of privately cars further have met with success, while the number of private cars in Europe is increasing in many countries. And yet, Singapore has one of the most efficient, affordable and clean transportation systems. While it feels funny talking to them about the “Mobility-as-a-Service” movement in Europe, they have the culture of wanting to improve further and get the best out of all continents.
