[IRU, a MaaS Alliance member, is actively involved in the MyCorridor project and leads the project’s work on communication and events.]
MyCorridor is a 3-year project, funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme. The project’s objective is to facilitate sustainable travel in urban and interurban areas and across borders.
The MyCorridor project is part of the Mobility as a Service (MaaS) concept, offering users tailor-made travel solutions based on their individual needs. The project aims to integrate services from various service providers into one platform, bringing users end-to-end multimodal travel solutions. The MyCorridor platform will offer a one-stop-shop for door-to-door travel planning, booking, payment and e-ticketing.
The 1st MyCorridor Project Workshop will take place on 9th February 2018 in London, and will focus on a variety of MaaS-related issues, including exploring users’ needs (e.g., travellers, service providers and MaaS aggregators) and the legal aspects of MaaS. The workshop will be held in the London offices of MyCorridor’s project partner Osborne Clarke LLP and principally organised by the project coordinators: The University of Newcastle and CERTH, with the support of the Project’s Dissemination and Events project partner, IRU, who is a Member of the MaaS Alliance.
