Abstract

The MAAS (Mobility As A Service) is nothing more than a new business model for the provision of transport services. Like all “as a service”, it provides a monthly flat-rate subscription that guarantees the personalized use of a bundle of public and private transport: trains, buses, taxis, car and bike sharing, which can be used unlimitedly with a single subscription, all in one. To enjoy the service in complete tranquility, it is possible to rely on an ad hoc app that includes all levels of mobility. By entering departure and destination you can choose the ideal transport mix that meets own needs. With a single operation it is therefore possible to use services that are different from one another but perfectly integrated. Gradually the perception of an economic benefit associated with owning a car will go into crisis and it will be much more convenient to rely on on-demand and / or self-driven services considering that with their progressive diffusion, they will become increasingly cheaper. Finally, let’s not forget the green factor: more integration, more sharing, less cars, less CO2. The present work shows the evolution in Europe of this concept considering some cases present in the literature and highlights the needs of users at the service of the specific area of implementation
