This graduation assignment is part of the Sustainable Public Integrated Transport Solution (SPITS) graduation project. With this project, we are committed to providing travelers with the ideal travel experience solution, making public transport much more accessible, and significantly more sustainable.

The government of the Netherlands has been pushing the mobility market towards MaaS, advocating for a shift away from ownership and towards mobility on demand. In recent years, many companies have launched apps that provide Mobility as a Service. As a company deeply involved in the transport domain, Info Support is eager to understand the current state of the market. Have mobility providers genuinely shifted towards more MaaS-oriented products? How significantly has the shared mobility and public transport market changed? Many mobility providers have adopted TOMP as the primary specification for communication between themselves and transport operators. What is the current state of adoption of this specification in the wider mobility market?

Assignment

Research the current state of the mobility market regarding their adoption of MaaS and, specifically, the TOMP specification. How advanced is the transition, and what steps should be taken to accelerate the move to MaaS?
