How SaaS is creating efficient public transit

  • Date: 07/21/2022

With decades of experience in this field, Karsch said two new waves are sweeping through mass transit agencies around the world:

  • Mobility on Demand (MOD), as defined by the U.S. Department of Transportation, is a concept based on a simple principle: transportation is a commodity where different modes have different economic values. These are distinguishable in terms of cost, journey time, wait time, number of connections, convenience, and other attributes.
  • Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is a combination of public and private transportation services within a given regional environment. It provides holistic and people-centered travel options. The goal is to enable end-to-end journeys paid for by the user, as a single charge.

“Given the current economic climate and continued recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, we expect to see these modernization efforts continue to transform the way users interact with transit systems around the globe in 2022,” Karsch said.
