Creating the first pan-European Urban Mobility Operating System

OUR GOAL

Today, players in mobility form scattered modes while the mobility domain is getting more fragmented. Each mobility provider or ecosystem fulfills mobility and mobility related services for customers in that silo. For each ecosystem and solution one needs a different app and account.

Our aim is to build a pan-European Urban Mobility Operating System (UMOS). UMOS is a universal service platform in order to offer a one-stop platform for optimized and customized travel experience. It integrates various mobility and related services in order to offer a one-stop platform and customized travel experience. The integrated mobility services are multi-model and wide in range, including car and bike-rental and sharing, and taxi, as well a different forms of public transport.

Beyond Mobility as a Service

However UMOS is not only a Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solution; it is beyond MaaS. It envisions an ultimate experience for the traveler; hence incorporates also services, such as parking, insurance, and even accommodation and entertainment, that complement and enhance this experience. With the support of policy makers it contributes to the increased livability of cities by offering more sustainable alternatives tot private cars.

Vision

UMOS is envisioned as a universal open service platform for optimized, customized and seamless mobility for the traveler. It integrates various mobility and related services as a one-stop platform.

The integrated mobility services are multi-modal and wide in range. However, UMOS is not only a MaaS; it is beyond MaaS! It envisions an ultimate experience for the traveler, hence, incorporates also services, such as parking and insurance, which complement and enhance this experience.

Platform

UMOS aims to achieve its vision through a service platform accessible to travelers via an application (mobile/web) and to other systems through APIs that use standardized data exchange mechanisms.

This Service Platform is the critical backbone of the UMOS Architecture, where real-time service data (mobility and other services, and traffic) is published by providers and kept up-to-date through APIs.

Not-for-Profit

Parallel to the case for the mobility service providers, MaaS providers are scattered, often aiming to address the needs of local or regional travelers, leading to a more fragmented ecosystem. This makes the mobility arena more vulnerable to profit-seeking big players that potentially pursue non-ideal interests.

UMOS will be a not-for-profit organization and a Pan-European solution. It will act in accordance with EU laws and regulations, and as such, will aim to be the trusted body for EU citizens and for all service providers in the ecosystem.

Operating Models

Platform

Mode A: Open service platform

The backbone to mobility providers that facilitates service shares and transactions in the background.

Mode B: Mode A plus app

End-users service by mobile/web app to offer optimized and customized trip planning.

Mode C: Mode B plus one-stop-shop

The ticketing and related transactions to be performed directly through its app, orchestrating the data exchange between service providers for end-to-end travel.

This mode is the ultimate UMOS vision of becoming an one-stop shop for the travel experience.

UMOS wil operate in 3 concurrent modes

Mode A: Open Service Platform

The backbone to mobility providers that facilitates service shares and transactions in the background.

Mode B: Mode A plus App

End-users service by mobile/web app to offer optimized and customized trip planning.

Mode C: Mode B plus one-stop-shop

The ticketing and related transactions to be performed directly through its app, orchestrating the data exchange between service providers for end-to-end travel. This mode is the ultimate UMOS vision of becoming a one-stop shop for the travel experience.

UMOS & Mobility Providers

UMOS aims to achieve its vision through a service platform accessible to travellers via an application (mobile/web) and to other systems through APIs that use standardized data exchange mechanisms.

This Service Platform is the critical backbone of the UMOS Architecture, where real-time service data (mobility and other services, and traffic) is published by providers and kept up-to-date through APIs.

Governmental Bodies

Parallel to the case for the mobility service providers, MaaS providers are scattered, often aiming to address the needs of local or regional travelers, leading to a more fragmented ecosystem. This makes the mobility arena more vulnerable to profit-seeking big players that potentially pursue non-ideal interests.

UMOS will be a not-for-profit organization and a Pan-European solution. It will act in accordance with EU laws and regulations, and as such, will aim to be the trusted body for EU citizens and for all service providers in the ecosystem.
