Session 1: What customers want, what customers get from MaaS
As cities and regions open up to new transport services, more and more private MaaS providers are working on viable business models. At the same time, citizens and mobility customers show a wide range of different mobility needs and lifestyles. How do new MaaS services address the public agenda? What incentives or benefits need to be offered to residents, so they can leave their cars behind? And what do travelers expect from MaaS – Will the existing MaaS offering be sufficient to change their mobility behavior? How do we attract users in the long term?
Session 2: Public, private, social or a mix of everything – What role do MaaS providers play?
With MaaS, the rules are being reshuffled: Mobility is being reinterpreted, borders are becoming increasingly blurred, resulting in mixed forms of mobility. The same holds true for the providers of MaaS, who find themselves in their role between private, social, public and profit-oriented. Who can all be MaaS providers, who shouldn’t be? Are there rules according to which the MaaS ecosystem is played and who determines them? Does MaaS change depending on the type of provider?
Session 3: Establishing and maintaining transport services in cities
Transport service providers give travelers the opportunity to use new modes such as e-scooters but also familiar ones such as public transport in a different or combined way. However, the expansion strategy of new providers does not always fit the agenda of cities and regions. First conflicts of interest confirm that different goals are pursued on both sides and thus block the expansion of urban mobility. To improve urban mobility, well-thought-out mobility offers are needed. But where do they start? How can both sides be satisfied? Do all transport service providers even want to become part of MaaS?
Session 4: How cities and regions find or fight for balance in the MaaS world
Cities and regions are the arena of mobility. At the same time, they are also the playmakers or referees who should make fair competition possible. But when it comes to their own services, the balance is shaken. How do you create fair conditions for all players in the market? Can cities and regions help others bring new services to market while strengthening their own position as providers? How is it possible to combine the political agenda with a business case?
Friday, May 17, 2019
Three practical workshops will be held to define use cases for cities, municipalities and stakeholders in the MaaS ecosystem. In detail, the workshops focus on the policy agenda and its limitations, what is required for a private business case and how a MaaS ecosystem is built from the ground up.
