The SOLUTIONSplus training on Mobility as a Service (MaaS) will start later this month with a kick-off webinar on 17 January. In this new e-course, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about MaaS and how it can contribute to greener mobility.

This free e-course, which is part of the global e-learning programme on electric mobility of the SOLUTIONSplus project, will focus on the concept of MaaS and the decarbonisation of the transport system, linking it with Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) solutions.

Four different units make up this e-course, spread out over a few weeks. Unit 1, led by ERTICO introduces MaaS and its core concepts. The unit explores the necessity of digitisation to deploy MaaS and how to enable behavioral change in citizens. POLIS leads Unit 2 on users and customers’ needs to ensure accessible and affordable services. Planning and ticketing are also addressed, as well as local needs around MaaS services. ERTICO then examines the standards needed to deploy MaaS in cities in Unit 3. This unit also looks at the public vs private approach to MaaS and presents the MaaS Alliance playbook. Finally, in Unit 4, SWARCO explores the role of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) in supporting MaaS. New forms of mobility are discussed in this unit, as well as sustainable solutions for the transport of people and goods, advancements in traffic management measures, and transport policies.

The SOLUTIONSplus partners have been working with experts from the MaaS Alliance, ERTICO, HITRANS, Transport for West Midlands, POLIS, City Able, PluService SRL, UITP, the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Finland, MobilityData and SWARCO, to develop this new training programme.

Join the kick-off webinar of the e-course on 17 January (15:00-16:00 CET)! Sign up here.
