New Mobility as a Service Interest Group

Home / News | posted on 20 04 2017

ITS (UK) has launched a new interest group dedicated to Mobility as a Service (MaaS), which has been identified by the society as a key deliverable of ITS technologies.

Many of the MaaS concept's constituent parts, such as connected vehicles, local authorities, road user charging and public transport, are already covered by other working groups. But there was also a demand for specific meetings to discuss and develop MaaS in the UK. "We have pulled this group together due to overwhelming interest from sectors spanning software to financial services, with key transport and technology players in between" said the group's founding Chairman Andrew Pearce, of Jacobs. "The potential to enable modal shift and reduce pollution and congestion by providing a more convenient alternative to car trips is really grabbing the industry's imagination and the global projected market of over $2 trillion underlines just what a key topic this is to get right".
