The tendering of MaaS framework contracts gets underway

0 (0stemmen)

The time for preparations is past. On 17 September 2018 the tendering of the framework agreement for Mobility as a Service (MaaS), long anticipated by many, gets underway. Sixty parties took part this summer in a pre- competitive dialogue in order to move forward thinking on what exactly the procurement would involve. From today until 1 November 2018 parties can subscribe for the framework agreement and thus participate in seven mini-competitions for concrete, nationally scalable MaaS pilots based in seven regions.

It has been over 18 months since the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (I&W) and seven regions joined forces to design a large-scale experience of MaaS: the traveller’s ability to plan, book and pay for a journey very simply, using a single app, regardless of which means of transport are required. Many individual discussions with market parties and a broad market consultation at the end of 2017 resulted last summer in a pre-competitive dialogue with 60 parties. In four meetings, they gave the MaaS programme team extra input for the framework agreement. In successive sessions the topics covered included the framework agreement itself, the business cases, the manner in which learning can be derived from the pilots and data exchange.page2image3809600

Nice mix

The parties in the pre-competitive dialogue made a nice mix, as the MaaS programme manager at the ministry, Eric Mink, observed. “As well as MaaS providers, various carriers including traditional public transport providers, platforms for sharing and IT platforms, specialist providers of, say, payment services and algorithms were represented.” The outcomes, he says, were positive. At the meetings the participants spoke their minds”. The input came from highly diverse players and discussion was intense. Moreover, to the draft framework agreement published in June we have received 27 written reactions.”


‘Togetherwe are goingto exploreMaaS’



A secondary aim of the pre-competitive dialogue was to enable the parties to make each other’s acquaintance. Virtually none of the potential MaaS providers are likely to already have in house all seven of the functions required by MaaS, expects Mink. So companies will need to form consortia. Doing so will enable them to tempt the traveller to optimum effect to actually use the MaaS appsto be produced. “This means a new way of working for everyone. MaaS will be a shared journey of discovery for carriers, MaaS providers and government authorities. For all three it can mean a win-win-win situation.” Not participating means a missed opportunity for parties, thinks Mink. “Overarching MaaS apps make the cake bigger for everyone. Together with regions, carriers and MaaS providers, we want to find out whether MaaS can lead to an optimising of the mobility services. As government authorities, we see MaaS as an opportunity for, say, expanding environmentally friendlier mobility while simultaneously improving the accessibility of regions and cities. We are going to measure this impact.”

7 December definitive award

For Mink it remains a surprise which parties in which combinations will subscribe for the framework agreement. Subscription is possible from 17 September until 1 November 2018. On 7 December 2018 the definitive award follows. Mink expects that with ten to twenty consortia a framework agreement can be concluded. “By way of the mini-competitions to be organised by the seven regions themselves, these parties may subsequently be eligible to participate in one or more of the seven pilots.”

Pilots in the starting blocks

One example of the seven MaaS pilots, and currently in the starting blocks, is that of the Province Limburg in association with Maastricht Bereikbaar.


Under the title, ‘Boundless Mobility’, the ambition is to offer the domestic
and international traveller in Limburg a good mobility service. Project leader Sebastiaan Dommeck: “We are finding the knowledge and expertise available from the ministry helpful. We are pretty proud that together with their national team we can design MaaS in the Netherlands. Our aim for the pilot is to learn what the effects of a MaaS service such as this are on mobility in the region and on a change to sustainable mobility. With the public-private cooperation of Maastricht Bereikbaar we have a good basis of 50 covenant partners with 50,000 employees to enable the initial roll-out of the service.”

The 7 functions of a MaaS app

In an ideal MaaS app the traveller can record their personal preferences, plan and book a journey regardless of the necessary means of transport, make the journey, get assistance if necessary (if there is a delay, for example), pay for the journey and, if need be, amend it.
