Piloting 'P2P MaaS'

Objective

Substitute private cars with shared cars and e-bikes

Problem

You can’t use something until it’s provided, but costs are increased when new transport services coexist with the private cars of target users

Solution

Users and providers establish compatible supply and demand online, before changes are made on the ground. Allowing compatibility to be contingent on services that have not been provided yet

Increases overall costs

Solution

Users select what transport they need and when they need it. More than one user, and more than one provider, can then be combined.

In this case, responsibility for covering the cost of the shared car is divided by days of the week 

Unreserved time made available to all Enterprise Car Club members, which increases as people become less dependant on the car

3 Cars reduced to 1

Each of the three car commuters agrees a pay-per-use rate, to cover the cost of new transport provision. In the background this involves a Smart Contract, on Minima's decentralised blockchain, which only takes effect when on all members of this 'Transport Group' agree to it. In effect they are 'crowdfunding' the ongoing cost of a combination of new services that meet the same need as their combined cars.

P2P MaaS allows a vision to be realised where cyclists have bikes and safe cycle paths, paid for with the future savings made by owning fewer cars and carbon offsetting those that remain.
