The MaaS Lab is currently working on developing a set of standard rules and principles, together with the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, that serve as the underlying structure for MaaS. This 'agreement system', which is established in a unique public-private partnership, aims to efficiently organize MaaS services in the Netherlands. The development of debit card payments is comparable: thanks to an agreed standard for bank cards, consumers can use all payment terminals.

public-private ecosystem for MaaS

De Attendees of the MaaS-Lab have a new one together vision piece drawn up with regard to the ambitions and goals that the partnership sets itself. The content was presented during the last MaaS conference on Tuesday 16 March. MaaS-Lab, the partnership of market parties that strives for an open ecosystem for MaaS services in the Netherlands, brings together organizations that normally compete with each other. However, all 31 participants are convinced that only a truly open system is the answer to the question of how future digital mobility services, also known as 'Mobility as a Service', should be designed.

Seamlessly linked mobility for travelers plays an important role in (better) use of transport capacity. It opens up shared mobility and focuses on the use rather than the ownership of vehicles. In this way, MaaS connects mobility with issues such as parking in scarce space, the housing challenge and the climate goals.
