What MaaS Means for the Transportation Industry and How Transit Agencies Can Prepare for It

mobility as a service

You’ve heard of mobility as a service (MaaS). MaaS is about transportation that’s accessible on demand. Is that enough or can we do a better job of explaining it?

Now you can go beyond the hype and demystify what MaaS really means for the future of transportation – and what steps transit agencies can take to get ready for that future.

You will learn:

  • The 3 categories of MaaS
  • The transit risk for each MaaS category
  • How transit agencies can prepare for MaaS
  • What the cloud and next-generation planning and scheduling infrastructure have to do with MaaS
