Bringing MaaS to the Solent Region

Launching late 2021, a new multi-city MaaS platform powered by Trafi connects the UK’s Solent Region in one app.

Highlights

Solent Transport and Trafi are launching the UK’s first regional MaaS solution. The platform connects public transport and shared mobility services across the Solent Region on England’s south coast, which is home to 1.3 million people.

The app features routing for buses, trains, ferries, and bike and e-scooter sharing. Carsharing services and deeper ticket integration are coming soon.

 

A MaaS first for the UK

The country’s first-ever regional MaaS solution is part of a €34m government-funded Future Transport Zone (FTZ).

A sea of mobility options

Go by bus, bike, scooter or…boat? Users of the Solent Mobility App will find several ferry services included in routing options.

 

Championing behavioral research

Collaboration with The Behavioural Insights Team (BIT) will deliver actionable insights on MaaS behavior and adoption.
