The availability of mobility services and the prevailing spatial structures have a major impact on the mobility behavior of the population. Mobility in the urban periphery, in particular, is heavily dependent on car use, due to lower density and availability of local public transport and other mobility services.
The European research project "OptiMaaS", with the involvement of public and private mobility actors, is developing new processes and business models for better multimodal, green mobility services in the urban periphery, focusing on the needs of the residents with the aim of reducing congestion in the urban area and the Social acceptance of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) offers to improve.

Client The project OptiMaaS is being implemented as part of the JPI Urban Europe on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT).
