Sven Koster is GoMedia’s project manager and business developer. The Dutchman has been with GoMedia for 3 and half years as the team has rapidly expanded, bringing infotainment platforms into service across the transport industry.
A typical day at GoMedia sees Sven reading up on the latest transport and technology trends, working with hardware providers and clients to come up with new solutions and managing the development of GoMedia’s latest projects. He also looks after the website and social media pages.
For Sven, seeing the difference GoMedia’s products make is the most rewarding part of his job, with technology like the personalised passenger information system (PPIS) currently providing real-time travel updates to passengers on TransPennine Express, keeping them informed throughout their journey.
Sven would love to see more collaboration across the industry to work towards the idea of Mobility as a Service (MaaS), creating seamless travel for passengers as they move between trains, buses,
coaches, taxis and even new transport modes like e-bikes.
Coming from the Netherlands, where bikes actually outnumber people, Sven is, of course, an avid cyclist. Away from work he loves to travel and has lived in five different countries. Sven’s favourite film trilogy is ‘The Godfather’.
