MaaS Scotland, a new organisation aimed at promoting smarter and more sustainable transport, has appointed Kate Armitage to its management team board.
Armitage (pictured) is projects and strategy director at Livingston-based intelligent mobility experts Route Monkey, which is part of the Trakm8 Group.
She joins the board of MaaS Scotland ahead of the organisation’s official launch yesterday.
Armitage said: “I am delighted to be joining the board of MaaS Scotland. This organisation brings together all the elements we need to create a thriving network to enable smart, efficient and sustainable mobility.”
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is a technology that brings together all available means of travel, along with transport providers and payment options.
By collating travel options and payment into one single application, users gain instant access to all public transport, from trains and trams to buses and bikes.
MaaS Scotland is a partnership between trade associations Technology Scotland and ScotlandIS.
MaaS Scotland’s programme manager Dr George Hazel said: “Route Monkey has been working on some leading-edge MaaS projects for some years, both within Scotland and across Europe.
“Kate Armitage has led on many of these projects, so she has valuable experience to bring to our board, as we seek to establish Scotland as a world-class centre for sustainable mobility.”
