Institutional frameworks for integrated mobility services in future cities

Reference number
Coordinator Lunds universitet - Statsvetenskapliga institutionen
Funding from Vinnova SEK 4 699 749
Project duration October 2015 - April 2018
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

Purpose: To create knowledge and policy recommendations on institutional frameworks that promote integrated mobility services and to further new collaborative research ventures. Goal Completion: The research has been collaborative, from the development of the analytical framework to co-authoring articles and presentations. As a result of the interdisciplinary approach, knowledge about institutional barriers and opportunities has been identified and elaborated on at the level of formal institutional as well as regarding business models and travel behavior.

Expected results and effects

Conclusions and recommendations are developed at three different levels: We emphasize the need to overlook tax legislation and regulations regarding procurement and competition, but also local regulations such as P standards. A clear future vision is needed to assurera predictability among stakeholders and investors. There is also a need for business models that address issues such as "owning the customer" - a necessarily collaborative endeavor. Finally, at the micro level, there is a need for more knowledge about the potential user.

Planned approach and implementation

This interdisciplinary project has brought together research on institutional conditions with research on the development of new technologies and services in sustainable mobility. The group developed a multidisciplinary framework for the analysis of integrated mobility services (IMS/MaaS), and conducted case studies in Sweden, Finland and Germany. The material has been analyzed jointly resulting in an identification of a number of institutional obstacles and facilitators for the development of IMS, which are presented in co-authored reports, articles and presentations.
