The Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) is a recent concept whose main objective is to change the way people travel and pay for mobility services. The provision of transport services is one of the key pillars of strategic importance for regional authorities. Therefore, regional policy instruments can play a valuable role in supporting the introduction of MaaS and simultaneously ensuring these new platforms will contribute to low carbon transport policy-goals, social inclusion and increased levels of accessibility. 

The main vision of PriMaaS is to promote the integration of traditional collective transport modes with personal and innovative ones by creating equitable mobility services truly focused on citizens' needs. Regional and national policy instruments should be adapted to promote a fully integrated intermodal approach between all transport services, namely by using data provided and gathered in real time about both travel demand and travel supply. At the same time, multiscale policy instruments should ensure that the more comfortable and affordable travel options for any individual to get from A to B has also minimum carbon levels. 

eGovlab attended the 1st Main Interregional Exchange of Experience Event and Building Capacity Workshop, where key players in the MaaS and smart cities field from both the public and private sector shared their experiences in building inclusive services, as well as the challenges lying ahead.

PriMaaS aims at increasing inter-organizational collaboration and building trust among key stakeholders (transport authorities, operators, providers of mobility services and consumers protection organizations). At the end of the 1st phase, 4 policy briefings and 6 action plans will be available to support policymakers and prepare regional policy instruments to a new arising paradigm in the transport sector.
