This paper discusses use of open innovation platforms in public transport context to create more value with shared assets and collaboration. Open innovation platforms allow businesses to develop new, better and more personalized services to citizens. Main result of this paper is the Value Ramp, which is a new description of value creation of different enabling features of innovation platform. The result is demonstrated as an added value description of Living Lab Bus project, but the Value Ramp can be further utilized in other ITS contexts also. With this description it is easier to demonstrate the versatile opportunities in enabling value creation. In addition, morphology theory related to the Value Ramp is presented. Used together, the Value Ramp and morphology provide easy method to overview what is offered and how different combinations of the offerings create added value. This way investments and sustenance of innovation platforms can be justified.
