This Interreg (Integrated mobility and Mobility as a Service) webinar on 13 December 2022 14:00-15.30 CET will explore the benefits of Mobility as a Service (MaaS), as well as its challenges, and look into the existing integration efforts that can improve the efficiency of low-carbon and shared mobility options.
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) has many potential benefits including interoperability optimised networks, better information provision, and greater efficiency for citizens. But challenges remain to how to both public transport and private services (taxis, bike and scooter rental, car sharing, etc.) can be integrated, while ensuring true sustainability.
While few cities currently have MaaS, many are exploring how to better integrate mobility services. As a starting point, 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 travel.
What to expect at the webinar:
- Keynote speech by Jorge Bandeira from the University of Aveiro on ensuring the sustainability of MaaS (PriMaaS project)
- Presentation by Mattias Svahn from SL on integrated ticketing and information platforms: Stockholm public transport (PriMaaS project)
- Presentation by Vasilis Mizaras from CERTH on developing MaaS: eMaaS platform of Central Macedonia (REFORM project)
