Mobility as a Service: transportation solution's pros and cons examined

1 March 2018

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is defined as an end-to-end solution where the customer (passenger or freight) travels seamlessly from A to B. This involves using several different modes, without making separate payments to different transport providers; without owning the assets of travel (i.e. a car); without planning journeys based on the mode of travel (i.e. is 'mode neutral'). MaaS is typically accessed via a mobile app, with the aim of providing users with a tailored travel experience.

Focus of the session

The Committee looks into the advantages and disadvantages of implementing a MaaS solution, and what the Government's role should be (if any) in supporting the development of this industry.
