On the 18 of February Amsterdam Smart City, together with the Province of North Holland and Datalab, will discuss the sharing of data by private parties and governance to set up Mobility as a Service systems in the region. There is currently no operable MaaS system in place in the region and therefore we aim to learn a little bit more from other cities.
What are their success factors? How did they convince private parties to share data to set up a MaaS system? How did governments reach an agreement on this? We can now confirm the speakers for the event!
First up will be Chris de Veer, smart mobility advisor at the Province of North Holland. Chris will introduce the topic of the event and share with you the challenges of the Province when it comes to MaaS.
One of the people who can share relevant information with him will be Juan Corro, CIO at the public transport authority, EMT Madrid. Madrid is one of the cities where we are really interested in. Juan will speak about the system in Madrid and sharing data from the point of view of a private party.
Another city to learn from about MaaS is definitely Helsinki. Helsinki was the first city with a MaaS system. Helsinki made the sharing of data obligatory. Sami Sahala, ITS Chief Advisor at Forum Virium will share how he thinks that MaaS is not a technical issue, but a change of the mindset.
The session will be moderated by Leonie van den Beuken, program director at Amsterdam Smart City.
Join this session of Data Dilemmas on the 18th of February, join the discussion and learn from an international audience!
