The Guide to Open Mobility-as-a-Service

Transit (App) makes a case for open standards in their new guide. They draw the comparison to email vs. Facebook Messenger, in the case of email you can send a message to anyone regardless of which provider they are using, in the case of Messenger you can only communicate with other Facebook Messenger users.
