Data sharing key to success for future mobility services, says Vianova

Cities of the future must integrate mobility services data into their existing transportation landscape for transport-as-a-services to be successful, according to a new report from Vianova.

Vianova, the mobility platform provider, has put a new report together called “Practical Guide to Mobility Data Sharing & Personal Privacy under GDPR ruling” to help share best practices for transport authorities in order to ensure the development of a robust, workable and sustainable city environment.

Cities are already using APIs and open data to power in-house and third party travel planning applications.

For instance, comprehensive data has been used to provide evidence of the impact of ride-hailing on traffic conditions in New York over the last few years.

The report said: “Cities around the world face a range of challenges in meeting the needs of the growing urban populations, climate change and sustainability.

“Options are complex and interact across a range of dimensions such as transport, economic development, and environment.

“In addition to the improvement of existing public transport systems, we have been witnessing the rise of new mobility services, such as car-sharing and numerous other micro-mobility services.

“However, these new mobility services have often failed to integrate transparently into cities' existing transportation landscape.”

Vianova also said the emerging micro-mobility market should also be data led, to embed itself in the overall transport system of cities, improve its operations, meet licensing requirements and interact with other transport modes.
