Turku , ECCENTRIC

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) has been marketed as a new transport concept that may change or disrupt current models of transport provision, particularly in urban areas.

The concept of MaaS claims to offer a personal mobility package based on lifestyle needs and delivered through a single interface and subscription. MaaS, driven partly by business and technology priorities, will have to have an impact on policy thinking, including at local, national and EU level.

Join this webinar to hear about the chances, risks and opportunities that arise from MaaS, from a researcher’s perspective and a city network. Learn from Turku about smart integration into transport policies and understand how Vienna managed to establish its own MaaS.

The topics and speakers in the webinar are as follows:

  • Opportunities of MaaS for the urban transport system and value to the customer
    Maria Kamargianni, MaaSLab University College London
     
  • The role of local and regional authorities in the MaaS environment
    Suzanne Hoadley, POLIS working group on transport efficiency
     
  • Driving change, how the Vienna MaaS model developed
    Vincent Neumayer, Wiener Linien
     
  • The MaaS readiness indicator - CIVITAS ECCENTRIC
    Stella Aaltonen, City of Turku

The moderator will be Karen Vancluysen from Polis. The webinar is taking place at 11:00am CEST on 26 June 2018.
