In December 2017, the DPA submitted a response to the Transport Committee Mobility as a Service inquiry (http://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/transport-committee/inquiries/parliament-2017/mobility-as-a-service-17-19/publications/).
A copy of the written evidence can be found at: http://data.parliament.uk/writtenevidence/committeeevidence.svc/evidencedocument/transport-committee/mobility-as-a-service/written/76181.html.
Parliamentary Chairman of the DPA Smart Society Group, Daniel Zeichner MP, said:
“It’s great that the Smart Society Group has been able to collate information from across the industry to submit to this inquiry. It is crucial that Parliament gets advice on the right regulatory frameworks and incentives to make sure this kind of new technology works for everyone. The possibilities in transportation and the development of Mobility as a Service needs insight from industry experts, but also needs to focus on the needs of people in the real world. There are huge opportunities, but real risks – the DPA is well-placed to make a constructive contribution.”
