The Coronavirus travels the world and impacts our lives and the economy. Let’s have a look on how mobility supports the virus and what we all can do to reduce the infection risk and keep things running.
Carpooling Lessons Learned
Carpooling or ride sharing can reduce congestion and emissions. Here are some lessons learned on what makes it work – or not.
How to Keep Cars out of Cities
Actions a #SmartCity could take to keep cars out and reduce #congestion and #pollution range from telework to #park&ride as outlined in a #Climathon project.
Mobility Service Roaming
Handover of Mobility Services In the blog post about the availability dilemma we discussed why a lack of cooperation leads to massive oversupply – and in consequence to congestion of cities and more emissions as studies from Bruce Schaller and
The Availability Dilemma
Competition of on-demand mobility services can lead to a two-fold dilemma in case Transportation Service Providers (TSPs) try to displace each other instead of cooperating: Oversupply through Density Inflation Multiplication of Oversupply Oversupply through Density Inflation Mobility customers tend to
Electric Kick Scooters in Future Mobility
Electric kick scooters could play an important role in covering the “first and last mile” in mobility services and so connect travellers to bus or train stations. For passengers without luggage, who are able to drive them, they can conveniently
MaaS & Rebound Effect
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) integrates various forms of transport into a single mobility service, accessible on demand. Ideally MaaS makes transport faster, cheaper, more convenient and causes less emissions. This is true per ride. But what happens if cheaper
MaaS – Business vs. Public Interest
Is Mobility as a Service good or evil? Guess what: “It depends.” It depends on our ability to align business goals of participating companies with the public interest, usually represented by public transport authorities. It is likely that these parties
MaaS and the Cannibalization of Public Transport
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) will add new modes of transport to the cities. If these new mobility services should not generate additional traffic, the traffic needs to shift from established transport options to the new options. Is this cannibalization?
MaaS Operating System
A Mobility as a Service (MaaS) ecosystem should offer a set of mobility services (resources) tailored to the customer’s needs. This requires that these services can be matched, orchestrated, billed and paid as one service via MaaS applications. To make
