Mobility as a Service Platforms Overview

What is Mobility as a Service (MaaS)?

Mobility as a Service (MaaS is an emerging market that provides a centralized platform for users to access and interact with multiple forms of transportation within a city, campus, or other dense environment. Mobility as a Service integrates both public and private mobility services within a given city to provide a user-centric mobility experience. MaaS platforms are most often used by city governments to integrate public and private mobility providers, such as train systems and ridesharing respectively.


Mobility as a Service platforms are designed to be accessible and easy to use for end-users by giving visibility into multiple, or all, available transportation methods from within one interface. They can also manage payment processing from within the interface, for a one-stop-shop experience for users. Mobility provider interactions will be more comprehensive, with integrations across ticketing, invoicing, service planning and scheduling, and demand analytics. These platforms tend to rely heavily on APIs to more easily integrate across dozens of mobility providers.


Benefits of MaaS Platforms

Mobility as a Service software provides benefits both for end users and transportation planners. MaaS systems reduce the number of applications and systems that transportation users have to manage and streamline paying for various mobility services. Transportation planners, such as city planners, gain centralized access to transportation demand and availability data. This data enables more efficient transportation planning and resourcing across public and private mobility providers.
