Introducing Mobility-as-a-Service at the 4th NEST Conference in Lisbon, Portugal

Posted on Posted in Events, Future mobility

Emma Cassar, a PhD Researcher, has recently attended the 4th Annual NEST Conference (#4thNEST) organised by the Network of Early Career Researchers in Sustainability Transitions (NEST). Emma presented her work in progress on the potential of Mobility-as-a-Service in Birmingham, UK.  

The adoption and use of information and communication technologies (ICT) by the Millennial and post-Millennial generation is considered to be strong enough to cause a shift in preference toward public transport. An evolutionary concept to help with this transition is Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), where all types of transport modes are located on a single platform and subscribers can plan, book and pay for their journeys. This intervention is likely to affect future travel behaviour, and is considered sustainable due to its sharing nature of available transport modes.  The presentation slides are available here.
