WORKSHOP PROGRAM

 

The future of connected mobility goes beyond the ability of commuters to connect with ride-sharing and on-demand services for the first and last miles of their urban travel experience, it’s connecting the traveler to the myriad transportation, entertainment, hospitality, and personal service providers ready and able to provide timely, frequent, reliable, and affordable service from the moment a traveler leaves their point of origin, until they return; no matter if the trip took the traveler from home to office and back, or around the world and back.

Learn about connecting the service, their schedules, and their payment platforms with the ability to research, identify, select, reserve, order, and pay through one ubiquitous application. How are the providers brought to a common marketplace? What do the contracts and governance arrangements look like? How are payment settlements arranged, and how are customers protected and their expectations satisfied?
