The MaaS Alliance and the European Parking Association have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to improve the use of mobility data in smart cities.

The partnership aims to support knowledge-sharing and collaboration to create momentum and scalability for sustainable mobility services, mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) and the wide use of data in the mobility ecosystem.

As they have overlapping interests within the field of smart and sustainable transition of cities, societies and industries, particularly in the field of mobility, the collaboration will focus on sharing knowledge on the development of MaaS for sustainable mobility in cities.

Cooperation in the technical work will aim to support the development of MaaS while exploring opportunities and preconditions for MaaS in different environments, as well as supporting the development of a common framework for sustainable MaaS that could be adopted widely around the world.

The parties will also support evidence-based policymaking in the field of MaaS and data-driven mobility systems via joint advocacy and awareness-raising campaigns. Beyond these priorities, they will host jointly knowledge-sharing events such as workshops, roundtables, webinars and events for the urban mobility community and other relevant sectors.

The European Parking Association is an international non-profit organisation registered in Germany with the mission to facilitate cooperation between the professional parking organisations of different European countries and the exchange and mutual support of professional experience among members. It may exert influence on measures and resolutions of the European Commission and other relevant international bodies relating to parking and urban mobility.

The MaaS Alliance is a global public-private partnership creating the foundations for a common approach to MaaS, unlocking the economies of scale needed for successful implementation and take-up of MaaS in Europe and beyond. The alliance is a legal entity, registered under Belgian law as an AISBL international not-for-profit organisation.
