About the congress
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is a growing technology that provides seamless integration of mobility services through user-friendly platforms. MaaS facilitates integrated travel options via various modes and actors including public transport, car-sharing, ridesharing, taxies, bicycles and micromobility. MaaS offers the potential to reduce the reliance on private motor vehicles for travel, in turn helping to address many modern problems faced by cities throughout the world, including climate change, congestion, pollution, transport poverty and social equity issues. While it is not novel that travel can be made by combining different modes and services, MaaS facilitates seamless payments through a dedicated system, providing higher levels of service, reduced cost, and a better user experience. MaaS research is accumulating rapidly. To date focus areas have included describing the concept, identifying stakeholder roles, feasibility studies for MaaS systems, case studies from MaaS trials, and policy implications when developing and operating systems. Beyond MaaS there are a range of other emerging application and digital mobility solutions which can complement MaaS and the broader transportation system.
In 2022, Tampere University will host the 3rd International Conference on Mobility as a Service (ICoMaaS) in Tampere, Finland from 29th to 30th November 2022.
