DfT are leading the Mobility as a Service policy development agenda for the UK. They have sponsored the UK’s first feasibility study into a novel Flexible On-Demand Transport Service, called Simply Connect, an affiliated partner of the TravelSpirit Foundation, that is using the busy urban setting of Manchester as the test-bed location. They are also sponsoring TS affiliate partner, Modalgo, a new platform that will give travelling customers total control of their travel data profiles, creating an equitable Travel Insight Exchange for use by transport stakeholders and MaaS operators. They are an active board member of the TravelSpirit™ consortium, and are assisting in the Open Governance of the project.
