Existing spatial structures within the urban periphery have a big impact on the citizens’ mobility options. The project “OptiMaaS” develops new methods and processes addressing the needs of public and private mobility actors to provide optimized MaaS offers.
In dialogue with the cities of Oslo, Brussels and Salzburg and their mobility labs, the project examines
- changing requirements and novel solution paths for planning better MaaS offers in the urban periphery,
- diverse social patterns within the urban periphery and
- developing new simulation techniques for evaluating the impact of dynamic incentives, pricing and personalized MaaS-routing policies on the mobility system as a whole.
It shall be demonstrated how to mergespatial and mobility planning at an early stage and how to promote the integration of public transport and commercial services in European cities. OptiMaaS shall contribute to raise social acceptance of mobility as a service (MaaS) and subsequently reduce the traffic load due to multimodal, environmentally friendly mobility services in the urban periphery.
The Energy Center acts as an interface to the city of Vienna and is responsible for topics surrounding OptiMaaS policies (management tools, implementation).
