i-MOVE 2.0, THE business model for tomorrow?
Sustainable mobility is best provided by the so-called “environmental alliance” of public transport, walking and cycling. However well-designed this alliance may be, it leaves gaps in the total mobility chain of our fellow citizens’ everyday journeys. If people are really to be convinced to move around sustainably, they have to be offered a wide range of comfortable and easily available mobility options that fit with their own lifestyle values.
Alongside improving service quality and increasing capacity for (conventional) public transport, this requires a comprehensive review of the service portfolio and retail facilities. Using bus, trains, bikes, carpooling, taxi or car-sharing will be possible from a “one-stop-shop” for information and payment. This will be as easy as ABC. How? Through the generalized used of web-based applications, the reason behind the acronym i-MOVE 2.0.
The 2013 Congress programme will feature 6 main topics:
- Service design and portfolio
- Strategic management and integrated business processes
- Funding model
- Governance and industry structures
- Smart city and mobility management
- The tools of Mobility 2.0
A first programme will be available online on 1 June 2012
