Japanese railway company JR East has signed up to the Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) Alliance, following the public-private partnership’s expansion into Asia.

 

The Brussels-based alliance’s mission is to drive the roll-out of MaaS worldwide. It also recently held a breakfast meeting on the subject of “making mobility smarter” at the European Parliament.

 

MaaS ecosystem

 

JR East wants to foster relations with the other MaaS actors around the world and study business models, in addition to imparting information on the characteristics of MaaS ecosystems to Japan.

 

The Group is looking to develop a “mobility linkage platform” to help passengers collect information, purchase services and pay fares, as well as to implement seamless travel experiences and shorten travel time.

 

“A major passenger railway company in Japan, moving 17 million passengers every day, JR East represents a valuable partner from whom we have much to learn a lot and will share best practices and business models to further develop MaaS worldwide,” said Jacob Bangsgaard, president, MaaS Alliance, and CEO of Ertico.

 

“JR East is also a great asset for us in strengthening the strategic role of rail transport services in mobility-as-a-service. On behalf of all the membership, I look forward to collaborating with [it].”

 

“JR East represents a valuable partner from whom we have much to learn a lot and will share best practices and business models to further develop MaaS worldwide.”

 

To help advance the MaaS movement, East Japan Railway Company has set up a MaaS strategy and design department in its Technology Innovation Headquarters and has been planning related strategies since April 2019.

 

Breakfast briefing

 

The breakfast meeting brought together MEPs, parliamentary assistants, experts from the various committees of the parliament and the representatives of the European Commission.

 

The discussion explored how to best deploy the latest technologies and support the roll-out of sustainable mobility solutions and the competitiveness of European industries.

 

Discussion touched on areas such as access to data and data-sharing environments, passenger and consumer rights schemes in mobility and developments in cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS).
