DfT to outline Mobility as a Service future at Smart Transport webinar

Smart Transport MaaS webinar

Smart Transport will host a webinar on March 9 featuring a keynote presentation by the Department for Transport into the role of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) in the UK’s transport and travel system.

The webinar, which is in partnership with Enterprise, will be broadcast live from 2pm and registration is free.

The DfT will present an overview of how MaaS fits into its Future of Transport programme as it looks to stimulate innovation in the UK transport and travel sector and help towns and cities across the UK reduce dependency on private car travel.

Helen McGuire, policy advisor, Future of Transport strategy, Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV), will lead the session.

Chis Lane, head of transport innovation at Transport for West Midlands (TfWM), will provide a view from the public sector, while Oz Choudhri, Enterprise UK and Ireland head of mobility solutions, will reveal findings from a private sector shared transport trial taking place in the Scottish Highlands.

TfWM launched its MaaS offering in 2018 to open access to bus, tram, taxi and hire car services through one smartphone app to pay-as-you-go customers or for a monthly fee.

Lane’s presentation will offer key learnings and provide detail on the appetite in the West Midlands for a change in transport behaviour and a shift away from private car use.

Choudhri will outline the development of the Go-Hi MaaS project that links buses, trains, taxis, car hire, car clubs, bicycle hire, air travel and ferries through one app for the Highlands and Islands region of Scotland.

Enterprise is a partner in the Go-Hi project and Choudhri’s presentation will explore key lessons on consumer engagement and collaboration across many different mobility service providers.

The DfT is currently consulting on a MaaS code of practice that will provide guidelines for new suppliers to enter the market. The deadline for submissions is May 3.

The code of practice will support new businesses in the MaaS industry to make decisions in line with Government goals, provide best examples of MaaS solutions and will assist local authorities in developing MaaS platforms to operate in their regions on nationally agreed standards.
