The Intelligent Transport System industry is constantly evolving and Mobility as a Service (MaaS) has become one of the fastest growing sectors in the ITS industry. MaaS is a key contributor to smart transport and the liveability of our cities, suburbs and regional communities.

ITS Australia identified MaaS as a key focus area in its Report Smart Transport for Australia and outlined opportunities for governments, industry and researchers to:
•    Ensure emerging transport trends including MaaS are considered in all major town planning activities.
•    Encourage and support demonstrations and deployment of MaaS.
•    Encourage open, real time, dynamic road and public transport data sets supplying information for a range of MaaS participants.
•    Encourage further development of personalised mobility assistant tools that allow travellers to research, select, book and pay across diverse transport choices.
