As a global provider of mobility solutions, Europcar Mobility Group is one of the major players in the mobility sector, offering services from rental and car-sharing to chauffeur services. The Group is joining the Mobility as a Service (MaaS) Alliance, whose goal is to promote the integration of various transport services into a single mobility service accessible on demand. The Europcar Mobility Group Public Affairs Director, Jehan de Thé, is also joining the Alliance’s Board of Directors for two years.
Created by a public-private partnership, the MaaS Alliance aims to create the foundations for a common approach to MaaS (Mobility as a Service). The main goal is to facilitate the implementation of a single, open market in Europe that allows for the full deployment of MaaS.
By offering various transport options in a single and unique platform, whether they be public transport, car-sharing, taxis, car rental, or even a combination of these, MaaS aims to give its users access to a package of mobility solutions through the use of a single reservation and payment channel so that they do not have to use multiple ticketing and payment services. It is an issue which is both critical and topical for many European cities and the discussions underway in Paris are shedding light on it and its importance.
