Usage patterns and impacts of a mobility flat rate traced with a Smartphone App

- Conference Paper
The concept of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) aims to break the determining role of mobility tools in favour of a pay-per-use approach for all modes. Translating fixed (sunk) costs back into marginal costs allows for a more time- and cost-efficient travel. Despite first insights into design and usage patterns of MaaS services, a number of questions still remain. For example, it is yet unclear, how use of MaaS services depends on the spatial structure, on the time of day or on seasonal effects; whether it leads to more multi-modal trip chains and how it influences activity locations and time use. This study tries to address such questions by analysing a rich set of travel diaries from an MaaS experiment in Switzerland, where respondents were provided with a 1stclass national season ticket for public transportation, a BMW i3 electric car (including recharging), free parking at a train station as well as credit for the use of car-sharing and bike-sharing schemes across the country. In return, participants paid 12’200 CHF (approx. 9’900 USD at PPP) and agreed to keep an electronic travel diary for the whole duration of the field test (one year) and respond to an entry survey. As data collection has just been concluded, the authors will report on the pre-processing of one-year GPS travel diaries as well as preliminary analyses on how such a “mobility flatrate” impacts its users’ aggregate travel behaviour, their mode choice decisions, and their activity spaces Show more
