Mobility as a Service is key to Monaco’s environmental commitment to reduce light vehicle traffic by 20% by 2030. The Monapass mobile application makes it easier for people to use their cars less, adopt greener modes of travel and improve their overall quality of life.

Flowbird has developed a unique ‘open ticket’ mobile platform that delivers a ‘one-app, one-account’ environment for integrated multimodal transport, active travel and ID-based subscriptions and passes.

The Monapass app, developed by Flowbird for the Principality of Monaco, offers users access to ‘a mobility system in their pocket’ by enabling access to account-based ticketing, secure in-app m-tickets storage, combined ticketing for travel and entertainment (museums, cinemas, tours) and integrated journey planning with parking, public transport and active travel.

Flowbird’s ‘open ticket portfolio’ functionality makes it possible to import and manage third-party ID-based passes and subscriptions for transit and other services, such as e-bike hire.

“Monapass is the complete mobility companion in your pocket,” said Paul Rogers, Flowbird Sales & Marketing Director. “We are expanding the traditional scope of MaaS apps to connect an ever-wider range of services and subscriptions and make them available through a secure, single sign-on account in a mobile environment. There is no need to manage multiple ID-based accounts through separate apps and we have advanced our vision for MaaS gateway to include access to multiple services through a single account and payments are through the Flowbird payment service.”

The Principality of Monaco is committed to digital transformation through its ‘Extended Monaco’ programme. As part of this agenda, the city has worked with Flowbird to deploy Monapass as a new approach to mobility for residents, tourists, and commuters.
