Mobility as a Service

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) refers to a service that offers a single way for individuals to plan and pay for their trips rather than use multiple platforms, via Internet-based solutions.

EU funded project in the spotlight: TMaaS

TMaaS, providing real-time information on traffic to residents

Concept: The main aim of the project is to create a live platform monitoring traffic and mobility for the city of Ghent, which will then be tested elsewhere from 2020 on. The challenge addressed is also for a local authority to seize an issue where private sector is often dominant.

Local authorities involved: Ghent (Belgium)

EU contribution: EUR 3.46 Million

Timeframe: February 2018 – January 2021

Programme: Urban Innovative Action

Current EU calls

Urban Innovative Action – Digital transition

Horizon 2020 – MG-4-5-2019 – An inclusive digitally interconnected transport system meeting citizen’s needs

Benefiting from digital technology requires specific skills, willingness and ability to assume a new role as an active participant of the digital travel ecosystem. The main challenge is therefore to ensure that all members of society can benefit from digitisation. To achieve this, it is necessary to better understand the needs and attitudes of various users.
