The Urban Mobility Operating System (UMOS) will be as a universal open service platform for optimised, customised and seamless mobility for travellers. The aim is to integrate various multi-modal mobility and related services into a one-stop platform.
However, UMOS is not only a Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solution; it is beyond MaaS. It envisions an ultimate experience for the traveller incorporating other complementary services, such as parking, insurance, and even accommodation and entertainment. With the support of policy makers, the customer-friendly system will contribute to the increased liveability and inclusivity of cities by offering more sustainable alternatives to private vehicles.
UMOS will achieve its vision through a service platform accessible to travellers via an application (mobile/web) and to other systems through application programming interfaces (APIs) that use standardised data exchange mechanisms. This GDPR-compliant service platform is the critical backbone of the UMOS architecture, where real-time service data (traffic and mobility and other services) is published by providers and kept up-to-date through APIs.
UMOS will be a not-for-profit organisation and a pan-European solution acting in accordance with EU laws and regulations, and as such, aims to become the trusted body for all citizens and service providers across the EU.
