2nd International Conference on
Mobility as a Service
Tampere 3.–4.12.2019
Tampere University

Background

“Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is the integration of various forms of transport services into a single mobility service accessible on demand.” This is the definition of MaaS as provided by the MaaS Alliance. The 1st International Conference on Mobility as a Service (ICoMaaS) was held between November 28-29, 2017 in Tampere, Finland. The conference aimed to summarise the state-of-the-art of MaaS research, and to provide insights as to the preconditions, success factors, and the effects of MaaS. Some of the papers presented in the conference resulted in a Themed Volume of Research in Transportation Business and Management journal.

The second International Conference on Mobility as a Service (ICoMaaS) aims to further increase our knowledge on the preconditions of MaaS, experiences from trials and commercial services, and the effects of MaaS, in particular on climate change and transport poverty.
