The Lisbon Study

The large scale study that showed the impact of MaaS on cities

The rise of new mobility platforms inspired a large number of questions concerning the role of mobility in the future. How will shared, autonomous vehicle fleets affect cities, the number of cars, rides and parking lots?

Together with OECD’s International Transport Forum (ITF), we aimed to answer these questions by organizing the ‘Lisbon Study’ – a profound investigation into the workings and consequences of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) on society. This provided the foundation for our new mobility solutions.
