UITP, EMTA, POLIS Public Debate on Maas governance in the context of a multimodal ticketing initiative

24 Mar. 2021
Online, 16.00-17.30 CET time (UTC+1)



EMTA, POLIS and UITP will be holding an online event on 24 March 16.00-17.30 (CET) to discuss the digital integration of transport services (Mobility as a Service) across Europe and the key principles laid out by the organisations in their joint opinion paper.

As Europe’s transport sector pursues the sustainability objectives outlined in the European Commission’s Green Deal, the digital integration of transport modes enabled by the Mobility as a Service (MaaS) concept can support this. While POLIS, UITP and EMTA welcome such innovation, the organisations call for a central role for public authorities in the governance of the MaaS ecosystem.

The group have coalesced to highlight a series of critical principles which  any European mobility regulatory framework must adhere to. These will ensure that digital solutions support, rather than undermine the key role of public transport as the backbone of urban mobility – and the rights of all citizens to affordable and accessible transport services are not diluted.

Effective governance of the MaaS ecosystem according to public values is the opinion paper’s primary call. However, this issue remains an ambiguous concept. It is for this reason that representatives of passenger transport authorities and operators,  the European institutions and industry will be invited to share their views on the governance of MaaS.
