MaaS as the Future of Mobility
With growing number of mobility and its auxiliaries services along both the horizontal and vertical value chain, the transport landscape has become increasing fragmented, and traditional approach to transport solutions are not effective in meeting the individual travellers’ needs.
NTU together with JTC Corporation (JTC) and SMRT Services Pte Ltd (SMRT) have joined forces to develop innovative solutions that seamlessly integrate multiple modes of transportation, for better connectivity and accessibility.
Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) Testbed
Taking a flipped research methodology, the project begins with the MaaS Testbed in NTU campus and JTC CleanTech Park through the following:
- Introducing new mobility services such as Autonomous Vehicles, Shared PMDs Services, On-demand ride-sharing etc.
- Integration of traditional and new mobility services through a MaaS mobile Application(App).
- Develop parameters for Data Analytics, Transport Optimisation and MaaS Business Model
The MaaS App, jalan is the first-of-its-kind in the region aimed at improving commuters’ travel experience by seamlessly integrating train and bus networks with next-generation transport modes, including autonomous vehicles, bike sharing systems and personal mobility devices such as e-scooters.
JalanX is an experimental service of Jalan, a Mobility-as-a-Service solution test bed developed jointly between Nanyang Technological University, JTC and SMRT.
It is an on-demand bus service from NTU and CleanTech Park, to residential estate. jalanX currently services between NTU & Cleantech Park to Choa Chu Kang, Yew Tee, Bukit Panjang, Woodlands and Toa Payoh.
