From ‘Mobility-on-demand’ to ‘Mobility-as-a Service’: Promoting China’s Transition Towards Sustainable Transport Integration
The MaaS study first analyzes the definition and global practices of MaaS. Then it depicts the current landscape, stakeholders, and barriers for China’s MoD services. With field investigations in Beijing, the Guangdong-Hongkong-Macau Greater Bay Area, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and Foshan, local trails of MaaS cases in China were made. Based on the assessment of key components towards MaaS, the study provided policy recommendations for the further integration of MoD and the development of a Chinese MaaS ecosystem to the MoT.
