Partnerships between urban mobility agents are essential to respond to the challenges of the climate emergency, considered the participants in the round table on “mobility as a service” (mobility as a service”), held within the scope of the Portugal Smart Cities Summit, which runs until Thursday in Lisbon.
This panel included the participation of Paulo Humanes, from CEiiA; João Ricardo Moreira, from NOS; Manuel Pina, from Uber; and Faustino Gomes, from Transportes Metropolitanos de Lisboa (TML).
Everyone is available to the idea of a system of sharing and partnership between companies in favor of the development of sustainable mobility.
Thus, the objective is to guarantee a greater and better range of transport options for customers, who unfortunately are still very much connected to private cars on their journeys, so that more sustainable alternatives for the mobility of citizens are presented.
However, the controversial issue of data sharing has not gone unnoticed. If, on the one hand, the sharing of data is essential for a greater efficiency of mobility services, it is necessary that the sharing of users’ personal data is safeguarded.
The integration of the sustainability factor was seen as a challenge, but an idea was also present that it is necessary to give a sense of urgency to sustainable transport measures and that Portugal has all the conditions to be a leading country in this matter.
The Portugal Smart Cities Summit, which has Jornal Económico as its media partner, takes place until Thursday, November 18, in Pavilion 2 of the Feira Internacional de Lisboa, in Parque das Nações.
It includes 12 debate sessions, in which more than 100 national and international speakers participate, and an exhibition with 80 participants, according to the organization, under the responsibility of the AIP Foundation.
The event is open to the public by prior registration online, at portugalsmartcities.fil.pt.
The debate calls are broadcast through the JE TV platform, through the website (www.jornaleconomico.pt) and through Jornal Económico’s social networks.
