Nearly 40 cities implementing level 2 mobility as a service schemes

mobility hub

Thirty-eight cities across the world are either currently testing, implementing or have already launched level 2 mobility as a service (MaaS) schemes.

According to Global Mass Transit’s recently released report on ‘Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) Initiatives and Opportunities in 100 Cities’, 80% are planning to expand their MaaS offerings.

Level 2 MaaS facilitates the finding, booking, and payment of individual trips.

Users can find, book, and pay for their trip at a single service point (for example through an app with a pre-registered credit card). 

Only 10 cities are either currently or have already implemented a level 3 MaaS scheme.

Level 3 MaaS does not just cover individual travel movements; the service also meets the full daily mobility needs of individuals and families by offering different means of transport through bundles and/or passes.

It is expected that cities introducing level 3 MaaS can truly offer it as an alternative to individual car ownership.

Out of the 58 cities profiled, MaaS has been implemented or is under implementation/pilot is underway in 35 cities and is planned to be deployed/expand services in 23 cities.

The Global Mass Transit report comes in two sections, with the first part providing an analysis of the current status of MaaS and opportunities across the world.

The second part provides updated information on 100 cities in 32 countries, including on public transport agencies/operators; key agencies supporting MaaS; existing and planned smart cities plans.

The report is priced at $4,000 (£3,056) or $3,500 (£2,674) for public transport authorities/agencies.
