ITS Africa Working Group
Africa is experiencing big investments in infrastructure and especially public transport projects and is also a fast-growing market for ITS deployment. To support ITS deployment in Africa and to help build capacity and encourage a coordinated enabling environment, ITS Africa was established by its three Founding Members of ITS Ethiopia, ITS Nigeria and ITS South Africa. Its core strategy is to help establish National ITS Associations in fellow Africa countries.
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is the integration of various forms of transport services into a single mobility service accessible on demand. To meet a customer’s request, a MaaS operator facilitates a diverse menu of transport options, provides value through use of a single application to provide access to mobility, with a single payment channel instead of multiple ticketing and payment operations.
Integrated with smart mobility and public transport, mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) can provide efficient transport services.
MaaS, however, will manifest differently depending on many factors and will manifest differently in other regions of the world. While MaaS offers a new and powerful way of conceptualising mobility,
Its application in Africa needs to adapt to country-specific conditions and requirements. Africa has its own unique intermodal challenges.
