Micromobility #19: Creating an internet of mobility - Boyd Cohen of Iomob

January 29, 2019 at 2:00PM • 40 minutes

On today’s show we have Boyd Cohen, CEO of Iomob, to discuss building a marketplace operating system for city transportation, and what is enabled having all modes of transport interoperable and discoverable.

Specifically, we dig into:
- What the benefits to customers and operators are for an open marketplace for mobility.
- Why micromobility is specifically well suited to open marketplaces/interoperability.
- Why Boyd doesn’t think the current scooter/micromobility operators will survive in their current form.
- The benefits and pitfalls of having system wide integrations for all transport options.
- How this will scale in the face of competition from Uber, Google Maps and others.

Looking forward to seeing many of you at Thursdays Micromobility Summit in the Bay Area! Please come and find us and say hi.

As always, let me know what you think on Twitter - @asymco and @oliverbruce

Hosted by Oliver Bruce & Horace Dediu.
