Mobilization of Open Transport Data

While new mobility offerings such Mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) presents apt opportunities to create more sustainable and attractive everyday transport solutions the current legal and technical interfaces from the public transport industry needs redesign. To this end this project seeks to create a common and actionable ground for the public transport sector containing the necessary components to support the mobility services of tomorrow. These components include additional open data and programmable interfaces together with contractual regulations that allow for innovative mobility services by third parties.

The background of this project is the Swedish Government's ambitions to manage climate change, making cities smarter and enable new solutions for future transportation. 

The project is commisioned by Forum for Transport Innovation, sponsored by Vinnova and managed and led by Samtrafiken. The project summons Storstockholms Lokalstrafik, Västtrafik, Skånetrafiken, Östgötatrafiken, Jönköpings Lokaltrafik och Upplands Länstrafik.

A final report will be delivered by March 30 2017.
