The ability to share smart data between many different transport and mobility accounts is a key aim of our organisation.
In an earlier post, we considered the range of benefits of customers being easily able to join-up their data from many different transport providers and Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) platforms. One of these benefits, comes from them being able to aggregate all their data from different accounts into the place of their choosing (e.g. into the transport app of their choice or the mobility dashboard website that provides the best user experience).
Transportation is currently responsible for around 20% of all global CO2 emissions.
So imagine the customer being able to see not only the miles they have travelled in total or the complete cost of a multi-modal trip… but also the combined environmental effect that this door-to-door transportation has had on the planet (e.g. the CO2 released as a result of their travels).
Surely, if we know which modes of transport have the biggest carbon footprints, integrated data therefore has a role to play in making this joined-up data far more available and presented back to the customer. So that in-turn they can make considered choices about the modes they use for transport & mobility and the greenhouse gases they emit as a consequence.
In-turn helping the UK to meet its Net Zero target of 2050.
