About OptiMaaS, this survey and the assumptions behind it

Since October 2018 the OptiMaaS consortium has been investigating the potentials of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) schemes for peripheral urban areas based on examples in Vienna, Oslo and Brussels. Within this questionnaire we aim to  get feedback on some of our ideas with a bigger expert community. We would like to thank everybody in advance who takes the time to support our project and fills out the form. If you check the box at the end of the survey we are happy to send you the summary of the survey’s findings.

For a better understanding of the questions, we would like to highlight some assumptions behind it.

  • We observe that peripheral urban areas tend to be less populated than the core areas of a city, reducing the amount of potential users for a MaaS scheme or for shared mobility services. Due to this it is more difficult for commercial mobility service operators to work profitably  in peripheral urban areas.
  • In a city’s centre, public transportation tends to be better. Infrastructure for walking and biking tends to be better, and distances are shorter anyway.
  • Finally, there are less mobility services available in peripheral urban areas. Therefore, car dependency and car use are usually higher.
