Mobility as a Service (MaaS) Trial in Sydney

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is a combination of public and private transport services within a given regional environment that provides holistic, optimal and people centred travel options, to enable end-to- end journeys paid for by the user as a single charge, and which aims to achieve key public equity objectives.

At ITLS – University of Sydney, a MaaS Trial is being undertaken with the following objectives:

  • To explore appropriate transport service mixes and subscription plans for early adopters of MaaS.
  • To generate first-hand knowledge of actual MaaS experiences.
  • To assess the readiness of the current public and private transport mix in Sydney to support MaaS.
  • To advance the understanding of user uptake and willingness-to-pay for MaaS.
  • To test the ability to influence travel behaviour through introducing MaaS subscriptions.
  • To document the experience in designing, planning and undertaking a MaaS trial.
