ABSTRACT ENGLISH
As more and more people live in urban areas, cities are affected by the negative impacts of the rapidly increasing car traffic, which is consequently leading to rising traffic problems andcapacity bottlenecks. These challenges are also being complicated by increasing traffic emissions, falling of air quality and noise disturbance. Since the creation of additional infrastructures will not solve the urban traffic problems, decision-makers are looking for new resolutions to tackle these issues with new mobility options. The key challenge is to develop a global mobility policy which could help reducing the high impact on people, the environment and increasing the efficiency of transport systems and infrastructure. The main focus will be on reducing the usage of private vehicles and promoting a greater use of public transport and other alternative transport modes.

New challenges affecting the planning and the development of mobility are very present, as steady growth, urbanization, demographic changes, value changes in society, scarcity of resources, and the need to reduce emissions will have us rethinking our forms of mobility.
However, new social trends and important technological advances will radically change and shape the demands and possibilities of mobility in our society. Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is one of the most innovative approaches tackling transport policy challenges in order to complete a more efficient design and provision of mobility and transport infrastructures. The main idea is to provide an integrated mobility service based on dynamic data and consumer-defined travel preferences, combining the combination of all means of transport in one single product for the designated users.
With MaaS, Mobility is provided as a seamless door-to-door service, where users pay mobility services rather than investing in their own vehicles. It is likely that this trend will change the mobility behavior of society, especially in densely populated areas.
As MaaS offers an innovative mobility solution, it is expected to have the potential to contribute to a reduction of the use of private vehicles, to an increase of the efficiency of
infrastructure and transport systems and to minimize the negative effects of the car-fixation, such as GHG-Emissions, noise or extensive land use.
The aim of the thesis is to investigate the potential impacts that Mobility as a Service (MaaS) will have on the goals and objectives of transport policy. Thus, it is intended to provide an insight into the extent to which MaaS can offer a sustainable solution to deal with traffic issues and environmental impacts as well as to increase the efficiency of transport capacities.
Therefore, the ideas and the specific characteristics of the MaaS Concept, as well as the most important changes that will result through MaaS in the transport sector will be pointed out.
Finally, the expected effects and impacts of MaaS are specified and used to develop a set of indicators that can be applied to further investigate the significance of MaaS as an instrument to achieve goals and objectives of transport policy.
