Speaker: alumnus Arne Nys (Product Manager bij door2door)


Last year, Arne Nys graduated as Master of Transportation Sciences. In the meantime, he works as Product Manager at door2door, a technology start-up with its headquarters in Berlin. Door2door aims to revolutionize, reshape and optimize public transport services by offering an on-demand ridesharing platform. This platform brings together everyone - including existing public transport companies - willing to offer demand-driven public transport. On Friday May 5, 2017, alumnus Arne Nys returns to Hasselt University campus Diepenbeek to give a guest lecture on 'ridesharing'. 

The guest lecture will be divided into two parts.

Part 1: Lecture about Ridesharing
13:30h - 14:30h
- Introducing the concept 'ridesharing' / 'demand-responsive transit (DRT)'?
- Talking about its context, history and current concepts
- Explaining the different types of ridesharing
- Setting up an operational framework using different types of ridesharing
- Defining important parameters to set up a ridesharing system
- Measuring the success of the system                                                                                                                                                                                   
Part 2: Interactive workshop
14:30h - 15:30h
During the interactive workshop, realistic cases will be presented and the assignment will be given to - in small groups - draw up an operational framework for one of these specific cases. The results will be discussed during this workshop.
