On Mobility Data Privacy: How to Balance Innovation and Protection

At the end of 2020, we discussed the importance of data governance within MaaS and our upcoming proposal for a mobility data privacy framework. 

Building upon the European Commission’s strategy for Sustainable and Smart Mobility, our framework puts the user at the center of control while allowing data to be processed and used for the benefit of people, companies and cities alike. That begs the question:

How should we define the tradeoff between protecting individual privacy and ensuring value can be extracted from mobility data? 

Our newest white paper seeks to answer that question in detail. On Data Privacy, Governance and Portability: Turning Obstacles into Opportunities puts our framework into the context of a rapidly changing mobility landscape and provides insights on how to balance data protection with technological advancement in the age of sharing.

Urban Mobility in Post-Covid-19 World

Urban Mobility in the Post-COVID-19 World

Co-written by Trafi & Porsche Consulting

As public life starts to move into the post-COVID-19 phase, the question remains how urban mobility will adapt to this “new normal.” From today’s perspective on the weeks and months behind us, the trajectory for the future becomes clearer.

The urban mobility ecosystem adapted quickly and flexibly to changing customer demands. This ability to match the overall supply of mobility modes with individual preferences on the demand side will be a key success factor for cities from now on. The modal split will look different in a post-COVID-19 world and will be even more fast-moving.

In this paper, we use the example of Berlin to compare the direct implications of the pandemic on urban mobility behavior, especially the relative use of different modes of transportation before and during the lockdown phase). Moreover, we will analyze the indirect consequences of a changed mobility behavior such as changes in air quality and in the parking situation. We present four different scenarios analyzing in which direction future mobility might shift.

Our findings are backed by data from the public transportation provider in Berlin (BVG), Mobility as a Service platform provider Trafi, as well as mobility analytics companies MotionTag and Bliq.

What is Mobility as a Service

What is Mobility as a Service?

Imagine that instead of owning the key that unlocks your personal car, you are handed a personal key to any given vehicle. This is where the promise of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) lies — a seamless access point to the complete mobility spectrum.

MaaS is not just a novel and convenient way for travelers to move within and beyond cities. It’s also the most promising alternative to the private cars which cities seek to push out.

The concept of MaaS also carries a lot of misconceptions. In this white paper, we aim to dispel the fog with what we call the Mobility as a Service fundamentals that are the key to unjamming urban mobility.
