Sydney, Australia – 22 February 2023: Global Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) technology provider SkedGo is today announcing it has won the Intelligent Mobility Award at ITS Australia’s 13th annual award ceremony.
Celebrating the best transport technology development and deployment across the industry, the win by SkedGo points to the critical role of MaaS, an industry valued at generating revenue of $92bn globally by 2027, and the importance of creating people-centric mobility solutions that reduce reliance on single-passenger cars towards a future of active, sustainable and accessible travel.
“Creating tailored transport solutions is at the heart of what we do, so it’s a true honour to be achieving ITS’ Award. We recognise that one size doesn’t fit all and have purposefully designed our technology to be adaptable to a diverse range of specific needs. This means that governments, transport authorities, businesses, and nonprofits around the world can create highly customised and localised solutions that meet the needs of their communities, whether those be students, the elderly, employees, or people with disabilities.”
“I’m incredibly proud of the work we have done over the past year. In Australia, for example, we’ve been collaborating with the City of Darwin and launched a journey planner which supported the city to introduce active and sustainable transport solutions. This marked our fifth Australian MaaS project, all of which are empowering the end user to make informed transport decisions that support the environment and community.”John Nuutinen, co-founder and CEO, SkedGo
SkedGo’s ongoing global projects include working with Carsales’ digital mobility platform Placie to provide a one-stop transport app for all Australians and collaborating with The University of Queensland (UQ), in partnership with iMOVE Australia and Department of Transport and Main Roads QLD (TMR) on the ODIN Pass trial (Australia), to offer a subscription-based model for students and staff.
