This June we are participating in the global conference UITP Global Public Transport Summit. During a few days people from all over the world will travel to Stockholm to discuss sustainable transportation and what public transit will look like in the future.
UbiGo is a participant at the conference as a MaaS (Mobility as a Service) builder.
– We're noticing that many people are curious about what we are offering; all your travelling organized through one app and with one single bill, says Hans Arby, founder.
While many people are talking about Mobility as a Service, UbiGo is one of the first in the world to actually offer a working solution. The ambition is to make people's everyday travel much more smooth, at the same time as contributing to the environmental health of cities by decreasing the number of households that own their own cars. Public transit plays a key role in this transition.
At the conference, UbiGo's founder will speak about the challenges that are associated with trying to create a service where a lot of different stakeholders, who are sometimes competing with each other, need to unite.
– Our service is completely dependent upon a solid collaboration with all parties involved, and with public transit in particular. We want our users to experience that their journeys become more flexible and that they have more freedom. That really puts the onus on us and our partners, Hans says.
At the moment UbiGo is available in Stockholm, but the ambition is to establish the service in other big cities around the world. The conference spans from the 9th to the 12th of june, and gives UbiGo the opportunity to connect with other actors within public transit around the world.
Stockholm was chosen to host the conference as it as a city is a role model when it comes to sustainable travelling and efforts within public transit.
Imagine having none of the hassle of owning your own car, but all the freedom.
On Wednesday UbiGo was officially launched in Stockholm. The mobility service intends to make the day-to-day travel of the city's inhabitants a little bit easier - and the city greener.
