Support the development of a platform for a comprehensive ‘Mobility as a Service’ (MaaS) provider (i.e. Whim, Uber) to unify and streamline connectivity between multi-modal networks.
To maximize the efficiency and capacity of the network and to better facilitate multi-modal transport and connectivity, the City should work with the regional governments and partner cities to bring online a Mobility as a Service (MaaS) provider that can facilitate trips utilizing multiple modes including DART bus and rail service, agencies, and technologies while offering a single payment or subscription service through a phone. This MaaS subscription service could be discounted for families below a certain AM. Examples of similar service include WHIM in Helsinki, and the expanded subscription offerings of Uber and Lyft in San Francisco and New York.
