The Department for Transport has extended its call for evidence on three core areas of future mobility as part for its Future of Transport regulatory review.
The call for evidence focuses on MaaS, micromobility and flexible bus services and seeks answers to the following questions:
- Whether micromobility vehicles (such as electric scooters) should be permitted on the road, and if so what vehicle and user requirements would be appropriate
- How effective existing rules are around flexible bus services, and which other areas of the bus, taxi and private hire vehicle framework should be considered in this review
- What the opportunities and risks of MaaS platforms might be, and what role central and local governments should play in their development
First announced in March 2019, the deadline for submissions has been extended from May 22 to July 3. Further information is available on the BEIS website.
