    The Impact of Mobility-as-a-Service on Urban Mobility

    PhD Research Summary:

    As the world continues to undergo a period of rapid urbanisation there is a growing demand for smart mobility solutions to reduce the negative social, environmental and economic effects of private automobile travel. Mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) has been identified as an alternative to private vehicle ownership, and a means to overcome some of the negative effects associated with automobile dependency. Even though numerous MaaS trials have been implemented or planned worldwide, there still exists a relatively small amount of research to guide policy and planning. My research will focus on the identification of barriers related to the implementation of MaaS, and its potential impact on urban mobility.
