Flagship MaaS project in Singapore and regional to testbed Mobility-as-a-Service concept. It is a collaboration between NTU, JTC and SMRT.
The testbed seeks to integrate multiple modes of transport, including shuttle buses, bike sharing systems, e-scooters and e-bikes, and the autonomous GRT into a single mobility platform called jalan-jalan. Developed by mobilityX to improve connectivity and travel within NTU’s campus and JTC’s CleanTech Park in Jurong Innovation District, which will be the largest living lab in Singapore. Jalan-jalan is a Malay term for ‘going for a walk’.
The smartphone application jalan-jalan received strong support during its pilot run between NTU’s campus and JTC’s CleanTech Park from last August. Just for e-scooters alone, the app was used to book over 67,000 trips, clocking a total mileage of over 80,000 kilometres.
This strategic MaaS project was to assess the public and private mobility network of the greenfield site. A data-driven approach was used to identify potential challenges that the site could face when it becomes operational.
This allowed mobilityX to create novel mobility solutions that could be implemented to improve connectivity, optimise commercial value and enhance the travelling experience into and out of the development. Solutions recommended include parking analytics, on-demand shuttle services, and integrated shared mobility services and functions which would be available on a single app.
This consultancy study was done to analyse and plan transport related services and infrastructure. Large data sets, proprietary transport planning, and optimisation software and algorithms were deployed in this study.
Key recommendations included the integration of the patient appoint booking system with journey planning, predictive scheduling, interactive wayfinding, and mobility-sharing systems.
