Purpose and goal
The purpose has been to improve the efficiency, robustness and attractiveness of shared urban mobility by facilitating better real-time integration between fixed public transport services and demand-responsive taxi services. The pre-study has had the goal of investigating a well-defined case with potential for a full-scale project. Public transport disruption management through cooperation with taxi services has been identified as an interesting area for further development.
Expected results and effects
The stakeholder discussions, literature review and data analysis indicate that a system-of-systems that involves taxi and public transport is a promising approach for managing disruptions in public transport. Further research is needed to develop business models for disruption management based on SoS in a Swedish context. Further work should also be directed towards a pilot study.
Planned approach and implementation
The approach used to answer the research question consists of three main parts: (1) stakeholder roundtable discussions, (2)literature review, and (3) analysis of public transport and taxi data. The approach and implementation have been successful. The pre-study did not manage to attract representatives from the taxi industry to the stakeholder discussions. For a full-scale project, a consortium should include at least one such partner to ensure that the developed system is useful and valuable for all involved actors.
