Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) provider Mobilleo has adopted what3words addressing system to enable platform users to more accurately identify their location and destination.

There are many places and locations in the world that don’t have standard addresses, such as beaches, public parks, remote locations, or large, shared offices, buildings and shopping centres. In such places, it’s hard for people to pinpoint their exact location. This can waste time for mobility operators, taxi drivers and passengers as they try and find each other.

Every 3 meters has a what3words address

what3words has divided the world into a grid of 3 meter squares and assigned each one a unique combination of three words to give them a what3words address.

Additionally, what3words will enable Mobilleo users to search for the most accurate locations of nearby mobility options and services.
