How individual transport turns collectiv
From November 5 to 7, the worlds car-, ride-and bike-sharing community puts up its tents in the City of Rotterdam. Invited by the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management and supported by some of the most innovative co-mobility companies around, wocomoco makes its first stop in the Netherlands since its launch 6 years ago.
At the 2018-edition of wocomoco, around 80 speakers and several hundred delegates will critically review and discuss current shared mobility solutions and help to further advance urban transport’s collaborative turn. Today, transportation’s digital shift, coupled with the rise of a global share economy, is rendering the private car increasingly superfluous. By pooling rides, co-mobility makes both long-distance leisure trips and daily commutes more affordable and sustainable. Shared bikes and electric scooters either unburden overcrowded public transport in citycenters or help to close a void in urban quarters, underserved by trams and buses.
No surprise, that transport planners, providers, investors and eager start-ups around the world are all gearing up to define their stakes and shares in this expanding market – while meeting yearly at wocomoco
says Dr. Jörg Beckmann, Founder of the World Collaborative Mobility Congressand Director of the Swiss-based Mobility Academy.
Developments in the area of transport and mobility are taking place at a dazzling rate. Collaborative and shared mobility seems highly promising in terms of reaching our sustainability goals. The Dutch government’s policy on smart mobility reflects its strong belief in the potential of these developments, concrete examples of which are the stimulus of car sharing and close cooperation (joining of forces) with our fellow public authorities on a number of MaaS-pilots in the months to come. Having the wocomoco take place in the Netherlands will enable us and all of our partners to gather national and international best practices, exchange knowledge and inspire us all in our efforts to make mobility more efficient
says Mark Frequin, General Director of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management
