MaaS movement? Issues and options on mobility as a service for city region transport authorities

The concept of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) has been the subject of innumerable conferences, powerpoint presentations and strategy documents as a key component of the future of mobility. By simplifying access to information and payment across a range of transport modes, MaaS offers the prospect of improved consumer choice and reduces the need for car ownership and use. However, with the practical application of MaaS in its infancy and with so many competing definitions and claims about how best to make it happen, it can be challenging for transport authorities to know how best to engage with the concept. In this report we seek to provide a framework for transport authorities to think about the role they might play. We do this by setting out: 1. What MaaS is; 2. The potential benefits; 3. The broader future mobility context from which MaaS has emerged; 4. The key issues that transport authorities should consider in relation to MaaS; 5. The options for the different roles that transport authorities might play; and, 6. Case studies of different approaches that transport authorities have taken so far in the UK and the wider world.
