The full integration between different mobility services can be realised using Mobility-as-a-Service Platforms (MaaS Platform).

MaaS Platforms offer the capability to smoothly combine multiple mobility solutions from origin to destination (train legs included) and pay for the entire journey with a single transaction. The platforms have the added benefit of real-time information along the journey that reacts instantly in times of disruption and delay, providing alternative routes.

In order to make the necessary shift away from road and combustion engines, it is essential that more passengers find rail and other public transport easy to use and convenient.

In a post-Covid world we have the opportunity to #buildbackbetter and build confidence in public transport again with the travelling public. How can MaaS help rail to meet this challenge?
