Investigating the safety concerns about shared mobility affecting women in the context of Mobility as a Service

Project: Research

Project Details


This study explores the disadvantages and safety risks encountered by women in traveling via Mobility as a Service (MaaS), a resource efficient shared mobility offering that enables users, through smartphone apps, to access services that integrate multiple means of transport such as shared cars, bicycles and public transport, instead of private cars. The diffusion of MaaS can make personal mobility more environmentally sustainable by reducing the number of private cars in circulation. The lower propensity of women to use MaaS because of
gender driven disadvantages, which can affect the scaling up of the diffusion of MaaS, needs research and identification of possible solutions. The study will investigate how shared mobility through offerings such as MaaS can fit into the personal transport practices that women currently adopt and how shared mobility
offerings such as Mobility as a Service can be made safer and more inclusive of women
