Understanding MaaS and the Emerging Circular Economy of Mobility

Robin Chase, co-founder and former CEO of Zipcar and cofounder of NUMO, discusses the misconceptions around Mobility as a Service and its potentials for public benefit.

Key findings

Chase suggests the best way to move forward into vehicles-as-a-service is to put pressure on manufacturers to develop a circular economy.

Electric bikes can be a freeing form of transportation, but users need to feel safe riding them. A twelve-month payment plan could make electric bikes more accessible as their prices continue to drop.

As personal electric bikes are less expensive than personally owned vehicles, the major barrier standing in the way of their adoption on a larger scale is supportive and safe infrastructure.
