MaaS Scotland is a partnership between Technology Scotland and ScotlandIS. We believe in rethinking mobility in a way that is smarter, faster and greener than ever before. Our goal is to deliver new and alternative ways for people in Scotland to travel, whether they’re based in big cities or rural areas.
By working with companies and organisations to create the future of mobility we can integrate various forms of transport into one single mobility service. The MaaS Scotland group is now internationally recognised. We are a strong network of companies and organisations offering products and services along the MaaS value chain.
All over Scotland, our team are planning initiatives that will engage transport operators, service provides and end-users. By encouraging shared work and collaboration, we plan to: Drive Scotland’s MaaS community; Increase the take-up of projects; Address user needs; Develop technological solutions. The results will be the development of a thriving network here in Scotland and beyond, enabling a future of smart, efficient and sustainable mobility.
- What is MaaS? Over the last decade, Mobility as a Service (MaaS) has emerged as the dominant force in mobility development, driven not only by advances in technology and the way we use it, but also by people’s needs and values. With increasingly complex and fast-moving lifestyles, people want personalised services that are convenient, carefree and easy to use. With convenience in mind, MaaS brings all means of travel, transport providers and payment options together into one single service, giving customers instant access to all public transport, from trains and trams to buses and bikes. With MaaS, the hassle of navigating a complex system of providers is removed. Whether it’s the office commute, visiting friends, or a spontaneous weekend away, MaaS will revolutionise your travel in the smartest way possible.
- MaaS in Scotland – Scotland is in an excellent position to play an active role in the global development of MaaS. It has strong capacity in ICT, energy and transport, the three areas of MaaS. It has also a supportive government framework and is the ideal size with the right characteristics to become a place to develop and test MaaS ecosystems. With an appetite from industry, strong existing capability and support from Scotland’s leading technology trade associations, MaaS Scotland is now planning a range of initiatives to continue developing its national and international links and securing Scotland’s future as one of the leading locations for the development of MaaS.
