Mobility-as-a-Service In-Depth Focus 2019
The prospect of MaaS is one that operators, authorities, cities and consumers across the world might look at as the holy grail of urban mobility – but what will it take to make that prospect a reality? Here, we look at the approach that more ‘provincial’ cities could take to implement MaaS, and take a deep dive into why openness in data and standards is crucial.
Included in this In-Depth Focus:
- Open standards and the age of new mobility
Philippe Martineau, President of the Board at OSPT Alliance, details the importance of open standards and ticketing in the evolving new mobility landscape.
- Developing MaaS in a provincial, car-dependent context
James Pritchard from the Transportation Research Group (TRG) at the University of Southampton and Nathan Watt from Atkins detail their research into the barriers preventing MaaS in more provincial cities, and the possible incentives that could be used to overcome them.
- National Access Points: getting closer to an EU-wide MaaS system
Søren Sørensen, Smart Mobility Facilitator and MaaS Ambassador, SFMCON, explains how the concept of a MaaS system spanning the entire EU could be in sight thanks to open data regulation MMTIS.
