The TravelSpirit Foundation was established in Manchester in 2016 to provide an open framework for the provision of new mobility services. To successfully achieve our ambitious aims for the emerging mobility sphere – within the UK and across the globe – we set out building a global network of transport operators, software developers, businesses, policy makers, planners, and activists across the mobility and technology sectors. Naturally, this global network is diverse, featuring a range of entities with different aims and objectives, but we are united by our four core values:
- Universal Mobility as a Service: We believe that an integrated, connected, multi-modal MaaS system provides the needed path to sustainable and equitable transportation for all people and communities.
- Open Innovation: We believe in an open innovation model, that rewards sharing of information that serves others, even our competitors, and brings benefits to all.
- Global Community: We believe that by connecting coders, planners, activists, and policy-makers through a global network, we are better equipped to tackle the toughest mobility and transport challenges.
- Local Benefit: We believe that our work must be grounded in its ability to demonstrate positive change by and for local communities and regions.
