Abstract

In the future, ecosystems for managing travel and all the associated services will be more diverse and innovative. These Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) ecosystems will combine services in an unforeseen way to enable fluent travel experiences. However, to succeed, MaaS ecosystems require integrators and enablers. Blockchains can serve as an technology enabler, but to reach their best potential blockchains need to tackle new business needs. MaaS ecosystems form an excellent arena for this. We present a model of a MaaS ecosystem, enabling easy, quick and trusted transactions taking advantage of artificial intelligence and blockchain-enabled smart contracts. We also present a subset demonstration of this model, TravelToken, which utilizes QR code that stores and uses travel information in smart contract over Ethereum. The benefits are that all travel data can be stored in one ticket, information stays unaltered in blockchain, and value-share as well as compensations in case of delays will be automatic.
