Crossing (modal) borders: a webinar taking MaaS global

In a webinar organised by POLIS, four pioneering projects were brought together, to explore innovative approaches to Mobility as a Service (MaaS). MyCorridor was there as well.

The webinar, organised as part of POLIS’ Mobilising Mobility series, sought to push the conversations surrounding MaaS one step further. Where discussions usually examine the application of Maas in a single urban area, this webinar explored the capacity for looking beyond the local, towards implementation across borders, while also delving further into the multi-modality of mobility agendas.

In particular, as regards MyCorridor, Roberto Palacin explained that “Crossing borders is a huge part of the project,” said Palacin as he revealed the App the project has been developing, which brings together multi-modal transit options on a single digital platform. “We have been establishing an architecture for mobility tokens, a payment system which becomes a ‘one-stop-shop’ for roaming.”

However, MaaS systems frequently rely on partnerships between public and private operators. This fact is not hot news, however, as Palacin revealed, there are multiple different governance scenarios available when implementing MaaS, with public-led, private-led, urban or rural structures shaping the delivery of MaaS.

“MaaS means different things to different people,” reminded Palacin, “Within digital integration of services, we have different business models for different situations, there are so many options available.”
