Siemens Mobility is to work with the RiVier joint venture to develop a countrywide Mobility as a Service (MaaS) platform in the Netherlands.
Siemens says the platform will be able to connect to existing apps offered by RiVier members.
The partners are now calling on other mobility providers to join so that travelling by public transport, bicycle sharing, car, scooter, and taxi, can be better connected.
Mobility providers can use the MaaS platform to draw attention to their services and better tailor them to the needs of travellers while also optimising their fleet management, the company adds.
RET director Maurice Unck on behalf of RiVier, says: “The pandemic is changing our behaviour. We work, learn and travel more flexibly: in time, place and choice of means of transport. That is why we are investing in the best travel options for consumers right now. We lower the threshold to easily plan, book and pay for a trip with multiple modes of transport.”
Andre Rodenbeck, CEO rail infrastructure at Siemens Mobility, says: “Having the ability to choose from the full spectrum of mobility options to plan, schedule and pay for trips, significantly improves the travel experience and enhances overall quality of life.”
Siemens Mobility subsidiaries Hacon and Eos Uptrade will supply the technological core of the MaaS platform.
