MaaS is door-to-door travel, by combining different modalities and unlocking them personally via an app. For the traveler, this should be a smooth, efficient experience. And that means that different organizations have to work well together at the back, so that if something does not go well and service has to be provided, the traveler is helped back on the road as quickly as possible.
NS Stations Services asked fresk.digital to map out the future service needs of the MaaS passenger to prepare for this future demand.
ServicesDiscover & Strategize
NS Stations is a key player in enabling Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) in the Netherlands. As an organisation, NS Stations is responsible for all kinds of services that travelers find at stations, including public transport bicycles, bicycle parking on a subscription basis, and P+R car parking.
To create this overview, we proposed to formulate a strategy that focuses on the needs of the traveler, and also shows which organisations play which role in the MaaS playing field around NS Stations.
It can then be made clear where there are opportunities to efficiently meet the service needs with digital solutions.
In our Discover phase we have created an overview of the many organisations that are active in enabling MaaS services in collaboration with NS Stations. In this phase we also mapped out the customer journey and expressed the traveler's needs in terms of pain points and wishes.
In the Strategize phase, we summarized the results from the Discover phase in clear visualisations, and a manifesto entitled: NS Stations and the MaaS service provider are a two-unit, with the traveler as the center.
