Transit Network Design with MaaS Implementation
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is an emerging concept, but recently it has been accepted and implemented in many European cities and beyond. This research will improve MaaS by not only considering minor modes in MaaS such as bike sharing, scooter sharing and on demand services but also considering existing transit service by modifying and optimizing its network. This research will help transit agencies with their transit network design and modification once they consider MaaS implementation.

Expected Research Outcomes
This research will develop mathematical modeling for the optimal transit network with MaaaS implmentation.
Expected Equity Impacts and Benefits of Implementation
Transit and MaaS can help underserved people who cannot afford personal vehicles, and improving public transportation can improve their viability and mobility for economic activities.
