Key messages

  • MDMS facilitate access to the transport system without creating additional services. For example, if there are no mobility solutions available apart from the private car, MDMS will not be able to provide a transport service.
  • Significant policy developments are expected in this field with the revision of the Intelligent Transport System Directive and the proposal for a new regulation specifically aimed at enabling MDMS development.
  • MDMS have the potential to reduce energy consumption from transport, especially in urban areas. This could promote modal shifts and raise users’ awareness around environmental impacts.
  • MDMS trials are not widespread and, as a consequence, experimental evidence is scarce. This contributes to significant uncertainty over the potential societal or environmental benefits that such services can actually deliver.
