We are living in the age of sharing economy, mobile systems and intelligent transportation, trends that lead us to see MaaS – Mobility as a Service – as the new frontier of urban mobility. It is a mobility model in which users’ needs are met by a single integrated service provider that combines transport infrastructures, travel information and payment services.
Municipia – Engineering Group has tested some MaaS solutions through two pilot sites: Cagliari and Naples. The ambition is to contribute to the improvement of urban mobility and sustainability.
In detail, the project includes the following activities:
- creating, testing and spreading technologies aimed at integrating all the various systems (planning, pricing, booking, payment) that enable new forms of mobility as a service
- developing, through Artificial Intelligence and predictive analysis techniques, models that process user behavior in order to intercept demand for mobility and to provide planning functions for the Public Administration
- developing and validating innovative business models for MaaS systems
- identifying and promoting the regulatory and legal framework for the development and implementation of MaaS schemes at national level.
