Welcome to the TravelSpirit.io Community!

We established the community in Manchester, UK, in 2016, with the support of a prominent set of founding member organisations, including the UK Government’s Department for TransportTransport for Greater Manchester, Alliance Manchester Business School, Alstom Rail, Ordnance Survey, BT, MaaS Global, La Fabrique des Mobilités (FabMob, France), Plannerstack (Netherlands) and the Institution of Engineering & Technology (UK).

Having gained early support from the open-source software community, our message around openness struck a chord with the transport community in the UK, inspired by the opportunities a more open and collaborative approach could achieve – Mobility as a Service. This led to the development of a stronger community narrative, that continues to support open-source software developments – in particular self-financing projects enabled by the new blockchain-enabled community token economies – while championing a wider societal and ethical concern around the future of transportation – as the industry siloes begin to converge and technology driven automation and platform economies take an increasing share and control over the market-place.

Through our 2nd Annual Conference, in London, on 26th September 2017, our community stepped out of its birthplace of Manchester, and onto the global stage. Our decentralised organisational model means we are now rapidly expanding our networks globally, including the establishment of a series of “regional nodes” – North America, UK (London), Europe (Turin), South Africa (Cape Town), ASEAN (Singapore), South Korea (Seoul) and China (Hong Kong).

For more information about the curators of our community, and our common vision, goals and objectives, please visit the TravelSpirit Foundation website.
