Question for written answer  E-002789/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Henna Virkkunen (PPE)
 Subject: Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) and abuses of dominance

The Commission has set out ambitious goals for the transport sector to deliver a 90 % reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, while at the same time providing Europeans with more affordable, accessible, healthier and cleaner transport alternatives. To achieve these, Europe needs to seize new opportunities for innovation.

One of these opportunities is Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS). MaaS brings every kind of transport together into single intuitive mobile apps and seamlessly combines transport options from different providers. Drivers such as climate change, congestion and digitalisation are pushing this development forward.

This opportunity for growth is, however, being hindered by the lack of a single market for transport and by problems related to competition, in particular pertaining to cooperation between the public and private sector. The challenges relate to three main themes: access to public transport ticket resales, fair and reasonable terms for ticket resales and the public sector extending public monopolies to MaaS aggregation.

1. How does the Commission intend to swiftly ensure that MaaS services are not hindered by competition challenges and abuses of dominance?

2. Which tools will the Commission use to solve these EU-wide competition challenges and secure a fair market for European companies?
