Whether it’s keeping up with work while on the move, staying in touch with co-workers and friends, or just looking for some entertainment, travelers want to stay connected. Now, this demand is spreading to the transportation systems themselves. Roch Muraine, Global Sales Director, Transport at ALE looks at current and future technologies that are moving us towards a multimodal transportation system to create an entirely connected experience for passengers, and how these trends are set to disrupt the way we travel forever.


The technology to create seamless or connected multimodal transportation exists, but the majority of services are still being delivered to the end customer in a disconnected, piecemeal way. For example, a journey from A to B might involve switching from a bus to a train and then a ferry, with tickets purchased for each separate stage from the different operators providing transportation. To improve services and keep up with the massive growth in numbers of people traveling throughout the world, we need to look at new ways to streamline services for travelers and simplify the provision of services for operators.
