Governance of On-Demand Mobility Services

UITP Asia-Pacific Centre for Transport Excellence is launching in September 2020 a research project on the Governance of On-Demand Mobility Services.

Research Objective

The continuous changing landscape of new mobility services, especially on-demand services, is posing a considerable challenge to many authorities across the globe.  Asian cities are particularly quick in adopting technologies as many cities face the issue of rapid urbanisation. UITP AP CTE project is focusing on on-demand mobility services and exploring how the governance, market investment and infrastructure in the region foster the growth of these services.

The outcomes of the study should give the public transport sector insights into the impact of on-demand services on urban mobility landscape and an overview on the different types of governance approach to these services.

Target Audience

All levels of public transport authorities, operators and on-demand mobility service providers with a primary focus on Asia-Pacific organisations.


AP CTE is collaborating with the GECKO project (funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme). GECKO stands for Governance principles and mEthods enabling deCisions maKers to manage and regulate the changing mObility systems. The project is coordinated by UITP for a duration of 30 months (Dec. 2018 – May 2021). GECKO and this AP CTE’s project share similar research objectives with different primary geographical focuses and AP CTE being more centred on on-demand mobility. AP CTE joined GECKO’s first Stakeholder Workshop on 24-25 October 2019 in London.

In addition, AP CTE will involve stakeholders through:

  • Online survey to understand and describe the current landscape of and attitudes to on-demand mobility in cities around the world. Survey will be sent to UITP members in Q4 2020.
  • City-level case-studies on current situation of governance of on-demand mobility services based on written and/or verbal interviews.
  • Exclusive online workshop(s) with authorities, operators and private players to discuss framework and policies of the on-demand mobility services. Workshops are likely to be organised in January 2021.
  • Blog articles for publication on UITP website and/or in the study’s final report from experts sharing their opinions on on-demand mobility services including successful governance structures, business models and trends in Asian cities and beyond.
