Digitalization is producing a dramatic change in the transportation sector, across and within existing modes of mobility. On the one hand, the Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have enabled the development of new mobility solutions, often embraced by citizens and customers, disrupting the long-lasting reign of traditional mobility modes, such as rail. On the other hand, the ICTs are also transforming traditional mobility modes, by making them potentially safer, more user-friendly and more reliable.

More and more, railways are becoming just one element of a complex mobility system that is, thanks to the ICTs, increasingly integrated, connected, efficient and user-friendly, providing customers with seamless end-to-end journeys that combine all modes of transport available. While the “Mobility-as-a-Service” paradigm seems to be driving the future of transportation, railway undertakings – as mass transportation providers – have a lot to win (or lose) in the shift from transport device ownership to mobility access and usership. Data is key to this development, which comes with risks, among which (cyber) security and the integrity of personal data of individual passengers. Clear rules on how to handle various types of data are needed to fully make use of the vast potential data analysis can offer.

The 14th Florence Rail Forum will look at the new emerging mobility system in a wider perspective, focusing especially on long-distance passenger transportation. The discussion will revolve around four questions, and in each session speakers and participants will have the chance to contribute to the discussion moderated by Prof Matthias Finger. Following the usual format of the Florence School of Regulation, the 14th Florence Rail Forum aims at offering a platform for senior stakeholders from regulators, railway undertakings, infrastructure managers, rail suppliers, authorities, associations and academics to take stock of topics relevant to mobility regulation and policies. Among others, Mr Keir Fitch, Head of Unit of the DG MOVE Unit C4 “Rail Safety and Interoperability”, will be present and engage in the debate. The Forum will address the following topics:

  1. What are the consequences of digitalization on mobility services?
  2. What is the impact of new mobility services on the rail sector and its regulation?
  3. Which strategies for railway undertakings to address Mobility as a Service?
  4. Data sharing among mobility operators: legal obligations, voluntary cooperation and external disruptions
