ITS UK welcomes publication of guidance on Mobility as a Service

The Department for Transport (DfT) has published its Code of Practice for Mobility as a Service (MaaS).

Max Sugarman, Chief Executive of Intelligent Transport Systems UK (ITS UK), said: “It is positive to see today the publication of Government’s Code of Practice for Mobility as a Service, setting out guidance for transport authorities, operators and businesses on how to best implement MaaS across the UK. The Code provides valuable guidelines in areas like open data, accessibility and commerciality, all of which will support MaaS providers going forward.

“MaaS – bringing together various modes of transport, with key information and payment via one combined service – can be a game-changer in supporting greater use of shared and public transport and encouraging the public to take low carbon forms of transport. As the £90 million Future Transport Zones and the Scottish MaaS Investment Fund show, the implementation of MaaS is already having real benefits across the UK, but there is far more that could be done in rolling out further applications.


“Alongside this Code of Practice, we urge the Government to continue its support for MaaS schemes, particularly through the continued backing of the Future Transport Zones post-2024/25, and explore other regions across the UK where MaaS could be rolled out. With Government’s assistance, the UK can support a more integrated, end-to-end transport system, speed up the decarbonisation and digitalisation of the transport network and deliver economic growth, investment and jobs in a growing intelligent transport sector.”
