Ronald Havermann

 

Ronald Haverman is an expert in the field of shared mobility. Ronald graduated in Physics. He worked as innovation manager at the Dutch Railway (ProRail). He founded the Dutch bike sharing OV-fiets in the beginning of this century. The ‘OV-fiets’ bicycles are now available in all Dutch cities. OV-fiets uses a combination of staffed and unstaffed rental locations and is a low cost high performance bike sharing scheme.


In 2009 Ronald lived in Melbourne. At RMIT University he raised awareness about a public bicycle system. He ran a community based pilot with students in Melbourne called CommonBike. Back in Holland he became director of MyWheels and introduced peer-2-peer car sharing. MyWheels is a not-for-profit organisation that combines traditional car sharing and peer-2- peer car sharing.

Ronald’s passion is to create alternatives for everyday car use. He prefers to work with open (source) systems and to have a strong involvement of local communities in his projects. Ronald’s dream is to contribute to the creation of a world wide open standard for shared mobility: Grab a bike or rent a car wherever you want with a single chip card or your smartphone.
