May Mobility, Moovit Partner To Deploy AV Mobility Package

The companies are delivering AV solutions that will allow more people to plan, pay and ride in shared autonomous vehicles.

May Mobility and Moovit are expanding the reach and efficiencies of shared autonomous vehicles and AV microtransit projects to mind the gaps in public transit.

The companies will be poised to capture a portion of the nearly $2 trillion total addressable market that Frost & Sullivan projected for the mobility-as-a-service sector. May Mobility’s autonomous vehicle fleets, powered by its unique Multi-Policy Decision (MPDM) technology, will work in concert with Moovit’s urban mobility app and on-demand reservation and routing software. The partnership will allow riders to easily plan, pay and ride in shared AVs while providing them a safe, accessible, and sustainable form of mobility in regions around the globe.

Moovit’s urban mobility app, available in 3,500 cities across 112 countries, offers users multimodal trip planning for any mode of transport with real-time information. The company also offers governments, transit agencies, and private companies MaaS solutions that cover planning, operations, and optimization, including its on-demand routing and fleet management software, Moovit On-Demand.

“The combination of Moovit and May Mobility’s technologies, products, and services will provide communities around the world with more mobility alternatives to choose from,” said Nir Erez, Moovit’s co-founder and CEO. “We share a vision of filling in the gaps in public and shared autonomous transportation and will work diligently to provide better access to accessible and sustainable transportation.”

May Mobility has given more than 320,000 autonomy-enabled rides in the last five years via 10 unique deployments in the U.S. and Japan. This includes AV services that currently serve communities in Minnesota, Michigan, and Texas, with other deployments set to launch in coming months.

“A big part of our go-to-market strategy is to partner with industry leaders that will take our services to the next level. Moovit is a trusted industry leader that serves more than 1.7 billion riders globally, and their services and relationships will further enhance our ability to scale,” said Edwin Olson, co-founder and CEO of May Mobility. “We look forward to growing this partnership with Moovit through expanded geographic areas and leveraging each other’s strengths to serve all passengers.”

The collaboration between Moovit and May Mobility will offer cities around the world a complete mobility package. Potential users of the future dedicated mobility app will be able to view options for taking May Mobility AVs alongside other modes of public transit, such as buses or trains. Moovit will also plan to bring its Moovit On-Demand software to May Mobility’s backend, further optimizing its AV routes.

Connected Vehicles Need the Right to Repair

A fleet of connected vehicles delivers many benefits to society and the motoring public, but critical technical decisions need to be made.

A modern vehicle is a powerful computer on wheels with dozens of interconnected modules, sensors and controllers. The technology works together to deliver the cleanest, safest and most fuel-efficient form of transportation ever. Automotive engineers have long dreamed of connecting these advanced vehicles to one another (V2V) and to roadside infrastructure (V2I). When vehicles can sense and communicate with one another, accidents can be avoided, traffic flow and speed can be smoothed, emergency vehicle response times can be improved and more. With these same vehicles connected to other devices such as traffic signals, pedestrians with mobile phones and other infrastructure (V2X – vehicle to everything), safety goes up and fuel consumption goes down. A fleet of connected vehicles delivers many benefits to society and the motoring public. Early examples of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are deployed in the US and around the world. Billions of dollars have been allocated in the United States to deploy ITS on hundreds of miles of roadways and in municipal pilot sites in Tampa, Arizona, Utah and Michigan.
