Mobility as a Service | Ministry of Infrastructure and Water
In preparation of the 7 tenders organised by the national government and the concerning regions, we created movement towards standardisation and interoperability of the car on demand; shared cars and taxi’s. Inspired by the cooperation agreement signed by bike sharing platforms and by the requests from the market to do the same for cars, we gathered almost all car sharing operators active in the Netherlands and some key ride hailing and taxi players around the table. We guided the coalition of the willing through a process around customer journeys, technical meetings, legal and commercial meetings. The goal being to create a blueprint for a common API, together with guiding principles as a start for cooperation between operators. Working together with the promise of creating something that is shaped and - if desired - also owned by participants. Creation of a common standard ultimately makes integration in MaaS or other aggregator solutions easier for all parties involved. We delivered a final report with recommendations for continuation of the process.
