New initiative MaaS Catalonia launches its MaaS Manifesto

A new public-private initiative, MaaS (Mobility as a Service) Catalonia, has been formed in order to tackle mobility issues at a local level and develop the concept of MaaS in a coordinated manner. The momentum for MaaS is high in Catalonia, with a growing local ecosystem in which the public sector is developing ambitious initiatives and projects. A few private companies are already providing new mobility services and others are planning to enter the market.

The main goal is to foster MaaS development and deployment and to do so, MaaS Catalonia is seeking international cooperation and global reach from the beginning to share knowledge and create new opportunities for all stakeholders on board.

MaaS Catalonia launched the MaaS Manifesto, which sets out seven principles advocating the idea of a new mobility paradigm. The MaaS Manifesto’s seven principles are:

  1. MaaS should be the best value proposition for end users

  2. MaaS should create benefits for the society as a whole

  3. MaaS can support more efficient business models and access to new markets

  4. MaaS relies on ICT Key Enabling Technologies to provide the basis for new business models and governance schemes

  5. MaaS builds on effective, massive and secure data-sharing

  6. MaaS development requires flexible policy and updated legal and regulatory framework

  7. MaaS is an ecosystem thing.
