Thesis working title

Integrated mobility services and contractual structures

Mobility as a service (MaaS) is an emerging concept in urban passenger transportation which has caught the enthusiasm of transport regulators, operators and customers alike. Best defined as a personalised, one-stop travel management platform digitally unifying trip creation, purchase and delivery, MaaS provides total integration across public, private and intermediate modes of transport. Such services are already being trialled in various forms around the world but it remains a novel concept and there exists limited empirical research on MaaS, its impacts on travel behaviour, commercial interest in the form of mobility brokers and the business models (including contract design) best suited for service delivery. This research brings clarity to some of these issues by market testing MaaS with respect to customers (end users), mode-specific operators and non-mobility suppliers. The major contribution of this thesis is the interface between the demander, broker and supplier in designing bundled mobility packages and mode-agnostic contracts using advanced stated choice techniques which elucidate demander and supplier preferences.
