19: Creating an Internet of Mobility with Boyd Cohen of Iomob

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.
