Description

The project connects services from various providers to provide the traveller with alternatives. This would replace their own vehicle trip with combined shared vehicles and multimodal transport solutions.

The project is part of the Mobility as a Service (MaaS) concept. This puts users at the core of transport services. It offers them tailor-made mobility solutions based on their individual needs.

The project takes place across six European countries:

  • Greece
  • Italy
  • Austria
  • Germany
  • The Netherlands
  • Czech Republic

The sites will develop Mobility Package tokens purchased from a one-stop. They will incorporate the following services:

  • Traffic management services
  • Services related to MaaS PT interface
  • MaaS vehicle related services
  • Horizontal (business related) services

The project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 723384.
