Electric scooter sharing fleet services are popping up all over the world. Transportation-as-a-Service (TaaS) also known as Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), describes a shift away from personally owned modes of transportation and towards mobility solutions that are consumed as a service. This is enabled by combining transportation services from public and private transportation providers through a unified gateway that creates and manages the trip, which users can pay for with a single account. Users can pay per trip or a monthly fee for a limited distance. The key concept behind MaaS is to offer both the travelers and goods mobility solutions based on the travel needs. MaaS is not limited to individual mobility; the approach can be applied to movement of goods, as well – particularly in urban areas. (Wikipedia)
Transportation-as-a-Service may cause a decline in mobile ownership, which would reduce overall emissions.
