This month we launched the MaaSlab website. MaaS (Mobility as a Service) aims to bridge the gap between public and private transport operators on a city, intercity and national level, and envisages the integration of the currently fragmented tools and services a traveller needs to conduct a trip (planning, booking, access to real time information, payment and ticketing). MaaS, and all the new mobility services and technologies, including autonomous vehicles, could lead to an unprecedented decline in personal automobile use in urban areas and thus reduce traffic congestion, energy use, and emissions.
The MaaSLab research group an enthusiastic multidisciplinary team looking to keep at the forefront of this ever-changing sector. Springing from the RCUK Centre of Energy Epidemiology and the Urban Transport and Energy Group at University College London (UCL), MaaSLab aims to keep interested individuals updated on news about MaaS and new mobility services. We also aspire to provide in-depth insights about the developments to industry and public sector.
