Future Female meetup Future of MaaS on Thu 12th of April !

The new concept, ‘Mobility as a Service’ is planning to change how we move around in our cities.

The idea of the concept is to give people more flexible opportunities to move around with various forms of transport services. It could be e.g. car- or bike-sharing, taxi, car rental or a combination of these.
For users, this should be as simple as possible. MaaS ads value of servicing to customers via a single application for all services, including a single payment channel.

You have an opportunity to hear in our meetup what has already been achieved and what is the future of ‘MaaS’ and how things are planned in bigger countries such as India.

We have three ladies taking the stage at Future of MaaS whom are all top of their businesses: Sonja Heikkilä, Reetta Repo and Ulla Koivukoski.
