Acting as a bridge..

between the needs & requirements of Transport Services Providers and travellers

In order to maintain its role as the backbone of the transport system and to remain a moreattractive mobility option, rail needs to respond better to customer needs and support an ‘anytime, anywhere’ door-to-door mobility, fully integrated with other transport modes. To do so, rail needs to take advantage of advances in areas such as cloud computing, big data and open data, as well as the proliferation of the internet and social media, recognising the impact of the increasing connectivity of people and objects.

The Shift2Rail (now Europe’s Rail) Innovation Programme 4 (IP4), a framework addressing and designing IT solutions for attractive railway services, has the ambition to achieve this, making rail the true backbone of the (multimodal) transport system.

Within IP4, the IP4MaaS research project has sought to advance ‘Mobility as a Service’ (MaaS) in Europe by testing available IP4 MaaS technologies in six demonstration sites in Europe. Their main aim was to create and test a better multimodal travel system making everyday trips more sustainable, flexible and efficient for passengers.

This Project Brief presents the key results from IP4MaaS.
