Session Notes: 

Are we ready for Mobility as a Service.      

Innovations get through at times against a transport solution.Technology is not the one stop answer to cater to service.

14 electronic delivery bikes in st kilda.Deliveries are going at a good pace. 

Use of Maas to assist shopping online,proportion of young kids with independent mobility is falling, Finland performing well

Best age group for adults exhibiting independent mobility is 30-40, taxi services are improving,hitchhiking points are deemed illegal.

Buses performing successfully , major limitation being frequency.

Global e bikes sold 2 percent implies Less space for car share.

In Central Park Many car share spots chosen than conventional parking lots.

Walking,community transport,taxis hitchhiking aren't working; Bike, buses are doing comparatively well;Cars are still maintaining its advantage

Ebike suits the environment in Netherlands and makes it possible to implement Maas more on bikes... Australia yet to catch up with improving bike trips.   

 Car share isn't versatile as compared to bikes. 

 Why shared bikes would dominate? Easily accessible and easy to rent;low cost item

Land use problem. If the density if less not enough people are going to resort to bike sharing.

Shared ownership. Car share requires more maintenance and looking after. Not as flexible and easy as bike sharing. 

Negative view. Not yet in an era where cars can do everything. Particular brands are not evolving the right way and depend a lot on lifestyle trends. Cars go a long time without a major change. When making a big switch, it's difficult for transport to accommodate that transition. 

For Car share, Convenience is the key. Cities prepare to give up car spaces to put up bikes. those are the ones that are succeeding. Push bikes are not convincingly good when

People choose to walk short distances.
