Event description

Description

Members of CIHT and non members welcome

Mobility as a Service is the next revolution in the transport industry. Just as private car ownership has defined the 20th century, service driven transport provision will define the 21st. The UK is already leading a prominent role in this revolution, led by Transport for West Midlands imminent trial of “Whim” (the mobility app) due to start in April 2017. The CIHT recognises the significance of this and would like to explore the challenges and opportunities of implementing MaaS in the East Midlands.

The event will give an introduction to the concept of Mobility as a Service to all those transport professionals who are new to the idea. It will feature an update on the first 6 months of the trial of Whim in the West Midlands, with new findings to satisfy those who are already familiar with the concept of MaaS. Key stakeholders will be present from the region including transport planning officials from Derby, Nottingham and Leicester City Council to give an insight into the local context of each city and what vision they have for transport in 2030. Finally, representatives of transport providers will also be present to give an insight into what opportunities for their business they see in MaaS.
