From 9-12 June, Stockholm hosts the world´s most important summit on public transport. Fluidtime, a Kapsch Group company, and UbiGo will be involved as pioneers in the field of Mobility as a Service.

Stockholm, 7 June 2019 – Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is the future of public transport. “We are the first company to offer a subscription-based service, which covers all your travel needs by using just one app and all on one invoice for the whole household or business.”, says Hans Arby, CEO and founder of UbiGo. The MaaS solution is based on Fluidtime’s platform technology, which integrates, standardizes and combines all transport services with additional routing, payment and booking services. Visitors can test the MaaS app and Fluidtime’s platform technology at booth A5092.

Following the successful implementation of MaaS in Gothenburg, UbiGo now operates in Stockholm and is ready to extend its service to other cities and regions together with its IT partner Fluidtime. “MaaS already makes the current situation in urban transport much easier, and the importance of MaaS continues to grow when it comes to urban and regional travel,” adds Michael Kieslinger, CEO and founder of Fluidtime.  “In the future, the use of Fluidtime’s platform technology will enable mobility customers to organize trips between cities and regions with one app.”

The ultimate goal of the MaaS pioneers is to simplify daily traffic for people and make cities greener by creating a situation where fewer people need to own a car. They want to minimize the burden on mobility customers. This is where public transport plays a key role. Just recently Via ID, a French financier focusing on start-ups in the new mobility sector, invested in the Swedish company UbiGo.

At the UITP Summit, UbiGo founder Hans Arby will talk about the challenges that arise when combining the insight and expertise of municipal, regional and private companies and organisations. “Our service benefits from the successful collaboration between all those involved, not least public transport. We want people to feel they have greater flexibility and freedom in their travel. This puts high expectations on us and our partners,” says Hans Arby.

More than 80 participants came to this year’s Fluidtime Symposium 2018 in Vienna. With 16 lectures by international mobility experts from cities such as Werfenweng, London, Helsinki, Dubai, Aarhus or Manchester, Fluidtime ensured that all participants were able to get a good picture of the current status of MaaS in regions with different populations and different progress. The audience supplemented the expert contributions with new views on future mobility, which led to valuable and fruitful debates, especially in the workshops.

This year we had representatives from Belgium, the United Arab Emirates, Romania, Hungary, Finland, Great Britain and many other countries in the audience. During the two days they were able to gain valuable content for their mobility agenda and gave us excellent feedback.
For those who were unable to attend this year: All presentations of the speakers and photos can be found on the event page.

The new Austrian pilot project “Digibus Austria” is currently researching and testing the reliable and safe operation of automated minibuses in local public transport. Test drives for research purposes are performed in Salzburg and Lower Austria. Fluidtime is responsible for integrating the new transport offer into a regional mobility system.

Fluidtime and the City of Aarhus have started a collaboration to develop a test- and demonstration area for transportation services and mobility service providers.

The overall aim of the project is to support collective transport forms in order to reduce pollution, CO2 emissions and solve congestion problems. Within the public-private innovation project, Fluidtime is responsible for the operation of a MaaS platform which supports both public and private collective transport providers (the operators of public transport, ridesharing services, taxi companies, carsharing etc.) and citizens which use public or private transport.

Fluidtime will setup the MaaS platform based on its Software-as-a-Service FluidHub technology and in the first phase will integrate the car pooling operators GoMore and Zify France as well as the local public transport operator Midttrafik enabling an intermodal connection between both modes. The pilot testing phase is scheduled to start in the second half of 2018.

From 16 to 18 May 2018 the WeAreDevelopers Congress will take place in Vienna. Fluidtime is represented as a partner with its own stand in the startup area.
