The platform integrates door-to-door journey planning, booking and payment services across the various modes of transport. The application also includes Zipster “marketplace” where partners share promotions that give users discounts.
Over the next six months, mobilityX will launch three new key initiatives including mobility subscriptions, digital payments and a mobility carbon calculator.
Last week, Singapore hosted ITS World Congress and mobilityX (partially backed by the public transport operator SMRT in Singapore) took the chance to showcase their Zipster solution. Zipster can be described as a pay-as-you-go (Level 2) MaaS-application providing a starting point for additional future functionality and service implementations. During the congress, CEO Colin Lim stated that Singapore is both the best and worst city to start a MaaS-service, it has a wide range of services but is also starting from an already high level of public ridership. He also mentioned that the value of MaaS lies in partnerships referencing upcoming collaborations with new affiliated services in the app as well as with real-estate owners.
