White Paper: Why Only Collaboration Can Push Mobility as a Service to the Next Level

22.06.2022

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is the mobility concept of the future. At the Future of Mobility Roundtable at the 51st St. Gallen Symposium, 12 cross-generational experts explored ways to advance the implementation of MaaS. Our new White Paper, developed with St. Gallen Symposium (SGS) and BCG, summarises the discussions and outlines how MaaS can become a reality.

Collaboration and dialogue are the cornerstones on which the St. Gallen Symposium (SGS) was founded over half a century ago. The 51st St. Gallen Symposium’s theme of “Collaborative Advantage” framed insightful discussions between senior and young leaders on a variety of global issues.

It was in this context that the Future of Mobility Roundtable – hosted by the St. Gallen Symposium, the Institute for Mobility at the University of St. Gallen (IMO-HSG) and Boston Consulting Group (BCG) – was held for the first time. Twelve leaders came together to discuss one of the most promising approaches to current mobility challenges: Mobility as a Service (MaaS). They gathered to share best practices, highlight current pain points and derive recommended actions to make MaaS a success.

 

Collaboration as Success Factor and Bottleneck

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, traffic volumes declined sharply in many cities around the world. Yet, evolving mobility behaviour – that global lockdowns and other measures have caused – cannot disguise the fact that mobility ecosystems across the world are under constant strain, demanding immediate action to address climate change, avoid economic damage, and do what they were created for: to serve people.

To meet these manifold challenges, mobility experts around the globe agree that collaboration between all players in the mobility ecosystem is key to success. While there is no lack of inspiring MaaS pilot projects, the implementation of this mobility concept on a broad scale is still very difficult. The reason for this lies less in the lack of technical solutions, but rather in the insufficient collaboration of all stakeholders to combine their respective competences.

The White Paper presents the key findings from the discussion at the first Future of Mobility Roundtable. It showcases best practices and highlights current pain points in the MaaS ecosystem. It furthermore derives recommended actions, calling on the key players to collaborate, to transform MaaS from a promising vision into successful reality.
