Podcast on “Mobility-as-a-Service”
Could the future of mobility lie in shared modes of transport rather than personal vehicles? If the success of Netflix is any indicator, the future of urban mobility might very well be centred on shared transportation. “Mobility-as-a-Service” models (MaaS) are forecasted to empower a new reality for urban mobility by ensuring equity and reducing traffic congestion, helping cities all over the world achieve their social and environmental goals. The Future of Mobility Podcast series brings together top voices of the sector, innovators and shapers who are invited to give their standpoints and recommendations on how new mobility concepts shape the future of transportation.
In the current episode, together with Andrey Berdichevskiy (Director of Future of Mobility Solution Centre at Deloitte) and Johann Jungwirth (Vice President of Mobility-as-a-Service Operations at Mobileye) Prof. Andreas Herrmann speaks about his work on future mobility. The experts also voice their opinions on how volatile times caused by the COVID19 crisis will affect the development of new modes of transportation. According to Andreas Herrmann, the COVID19 crisis might slow down the implementation of the idea of MaaS as people hesitate to use public transportation. However, MaaS will be back on the agenda as soon as we approach normal circumstances, because social and environmental issues MaaS aims at tackling will not stop to drive change.
