Building Interoperability

This project focuses on the facilitation of MaaS via standards interoperability & policy. The “Building Interoperability” revolve around the following points:

  • Interoperability
    • Allows the exchange of data using robust and open standards/specifications
    • Semantics alignment between standards
  • For the end-user (traveller)
    • Seamless travel from A to B
    • Multimodal choices to pick from based on accurate and reliable information
  • For the Public Authorities (PTA)
    • Removal of vendors lock-in
    • Reduce the cost of making data-driven decisions and of mobility management
  • For the private sector
    • Lower the barriers to enter a market
    • Solutions scalability at reasonable costs
    • More resources on innovation


The main objectives of the project are:

  • Support interoperability and convergence between existing and upcoming standards and technical specifications used in the context of Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS),
  • Support MaaS stakeholders in their overall and technical comprehension of EU policy and regulations,
  • Disseminate knowledge relevant to all MaaS stakeholders for them to build reliable mobility for all travellers,
  • Support the building of an open ecosystem.
  • Short term
    • Global overview of existing standards / specifications for mobility services management and planning
    • Support in choosing the most appropriate standards based on specific use-cases built for public authorities
  • Long term
    • Built-in interoperability to facilitate tendering
    • Representation in the further development of standards / specifications
  • Added bonus
    • Bridging the gap between policy mandates and technical implementation on day-to-day basis

The expected outcomes are:

  • Standardisation
    • Pledge for interoperability between all mobility modes
    • Built-in convergence between these formats
  • Implementation
    • Open Mobility Services Directory
    • Use-case store leveraging CDS-M
  • Policy
    • Multimodal Digital Mobility Services (MDMS)
    • Expert Groups for Urban Mobility
