The future could look very different from today.
Climate change, new technologies, and a shifting global economy are creating new opportunities and challenges that we need to consider.
One such new technology is mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) — the idea that consumers in the near-future will – through a single web interface like a smartphone app – be able to plan, book, and pay for a journey that may include segments on transit, ferry, car share, bike share, taxi and rental car.
What will it take to realize mobility-as-a-service in Metro Vancouver?
That’s the question we put to MaaS experts David Zipper and Catherine Kargas at the latest talk in TransLink Tomorrow’s The Future of Mobility speaker series, held on July 24 at SFU’s Vancouver campus.
A panel discussion followed with Zipper, Kargas and SFU economics professor Hendrik Wolff, moderated by movmi CEO Sandra Philips.
