With the surge of MaaS ecosystems, passenger travels are more and more multimodal. Passengers can start a trip with their own vehicle to be parked nearby public transport stations, take the subway and once they get to the desired station drive a shared car provided by a car sharing service to ride the last miles until their final destination.

Within the MaaS model boundaries among private, shared, and public transport become blurred and passengers are enabled to move around their city seamlessly using a combination of private, shared and public alternatives that rely on the existing transportation infrastructure to go to work or come back home every day.

The E-CORRIDOR approach

In the framework of the project, we have created a trip planner to enable multimodal trips.

With this trip planner we provide:

  • Test unified registration to improve user experience.
  • Test unified bookings – to test usability and measure user satisfaction.
  • Test subsidies offer and control.
  • Interoperability among mobility partners.

In this scenario, multiple stakeholders and domains are involved, such as:

  • Passengers (including PRM, people with reduced mobility requiring assistance)
  • Car sharing companies
  • Bus companies and DRT providers
  • Any other mobility provider or MaaS application

Requirements and challenges

Solutions designed for the Pilot cover:

  • Seamless, robust, and privacy-aware authentication: the traveller can take advantage and be in control of a unique, centralised, identification that have different essential data-sharing agreements with the mobility providers that integrate e-Corridor
  • Take advantage of a trusted identity provider to ask the user for highly personal, identifiable data, triggering the utilisation of such data to use mobility services with more confidence. Having scattered sensitive information on different platforms scares many users making the implementation of some services a challenge to scale
  • Use such personal data to allow users to take advantage of policies and subsidies that can benefit the implementation of sustainable mobility strategies that are micro-targeted to individuals hence more effective
