Mobility as a Service (MaaS) has many potential benefits including interoperability optimised networks, better information provision, and greater efficiency for citizens. But challenges remain in how to integrate both public transport and private services (taxis, bike and scooter rental, car sharing, etc.), as well as how to ensure true sustainability.
While not many cities currently have MaaS, many are exploring how to better integrate mobility services. As a starting point, many regions are focusing on integrating ticketing systems across transport modes, multimodal hub development, combining timetables and information services, and developing single apps and websites for citizens to plan their travels.
This webinar will explore the promise of MaaS, as well as its challenges, and look into existing integration efforts that can improve the efficiency of low-carbon and shared mobility options.
