Mobility-as-a-Service for Japanese Rural Areas: Policies and projects (Webinar)
Facing serious population decline and an aging society, Japan struggles to maintain public transport operations in rural areas and several suburbs. The government has established a special committee to select and support national Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) pilot projects. Ministry officials give an overview and highlight the lessons learnt from these pilot projects. A second presentation provides a more detailed account of the Shobara rural MaaS project.
