The Siemens Mobility Software Business Unit – comprising Hacon, Sqills, eos.uptrade, Bytemark and Padam Mobility – deliver journey planning and MaaS platforms worldwide. “MaaS combines intelligent journey planning, seamless integration of ticketing and booking as well as big data analytics combined in flexible and secure MaaS apps”, which Siemens are confident “can make it easy and convenient for all stakeholders to find their individual way through the mobility jungle and empowers transformation of transport to efficient intermodal mobility – for the benefit of travellers and operators alike”.
“The UK”, however, “has had a difficult relationship with Mobility as a Service over the past few years”, says Jack Holland. “Many UK transport professionals are sceptical of its value”.
At TRANSPORT Smart Class, London & South East England 2022 earlier this month, Jack’s presentation and roundtable sessions on behalf of Siemens Mobility outlined the key levers for the delivery of MaaS, explained the different ways to configure MaaS platforms and went into depth with an impressive selection of global deployments to demonstrate the real value and advantages that MaaS can offer authorities, operators and users in the UK.
The scope of Jack’s presentation included:
- Multimodal Routing Options – D2D routes including the first-/last-mile with PT as the main mode of transport;
- “Plan, Book and Ride” – 1) Information & Planning 2) Booking, Ticketing, Payment 3) Ride;
