In 2017 TravelSpirit developed an index to asses transport networks’ openness as they move towards Mobility as a Service. This index has been further developed by Richard Goulding at the UCL MaaSLab to assess the readiness of metropolitan areas for the implementation of MaaS systems.
Various characteristics which affect the likelihood of a successful MaaS implementation are assessed to determine an aggregate score showing how ready a city is to implement MaaS.
The calculator can be used to demonstrate what improvements are needed to make a city ready for MaaS. Scores can be compared across cities, showing
where MaaS providers could have the greatest impact.
Below is a summary of the index to download.

Integrated, seamless, secure and roaming mobility infrastructure for connected people and cars.
This Paper anticipates an emerging trend for integration of transport services, representing a $1 trillion per annum market concept called Mobility as a Service (MaaS). Rather than having to locate, book, and pay for each mode of transportation separately, MaaS will enable seamless planning, booking and itinerary management of door-to-door trips, wherever in the world you are.
It argues that services will remain constrained and delivered in silos, without a common rule set and governing framework. This framework will be implemented in a common machine-readable schema, with accompanying behavioural guidance, to govern interoperability between transport modes and across regional and international borders – the Internet of Mobility. It then proposes such a framework and advocates the development of TSio Protocol as a first step, by delivering seamless, secure and roaming global mobility account infrastructure for consumers and vehicles, using Blockchain & IoT technologies.
A novel crowdfunding mechanism, the “Community Token Economy Sale”, is identified for an open-source R&D programme, a key enabler of an open interoperable ecosystem and means of pump priming a new model for value exchange. It then introduces the members of the TSio Protocol “Minimum Viable Community”: TravelSpirit Foundation, GoMetro Mydex & MyLoop.
