MaaS4P: Intelligent and Automated Mobility in Potsdam
Neighbourhood-based networked concept Mobility-as-a-Service for Potsdam (MaaS4P) with innovative and automated forms of public transport services
MaaS4P combines the regular public transport lines for the north of Potsdam with networked and automated Mobility-as-a-Service services. The building blocks are: (1) a mobility platform for individual mobility planning and integrated operational management, (2) automated microbuses with demand-oriented operating modes and (3) a mobility station with bike and car sharing services.
The concept analyses the mobility needs at neighbourhood level, links these with the requirements of urban transport planning and develops a service design together with mobility service providers (transport companies, CarSharing, BikeSharing, service platform).
The goal is to secure individual mobility and to achieve local climate and environmental goals. The microbus system opens up short distances to bus stops. Mobility stations offer services for routes that can only be reached inadequately by public transport. The integrated mobility management platform ensures access to the entire service, including easy booking and an innovative billing model.
