3.82 - Mobility as a Service (MaaS) in Developing Countries

Project Description

In face of the continuous trend of urbanization, in combination with tightening environmental targets, transportation systems in metropolitan areas are put under great pressure. In response, new mobility concepts have been introduced in recent years. In particular, Mobility as a Service (MaaS), that promotes a shift from private cars towards mobility being consumed as a service, gained a strong momentum. First insights from case studies on MaaS schemes and trials suggest that it enables a shift towards more sustainable transport modes. With MaaS being concentrated mostly in Europe, this PhD project explores MaaS’ potential in developing countries. The research, thereby, includes a view from the demand as well as the supply side and intends to quantify potential benefits.
