Bus-as-a-Service (BaaS)
Research Project, 2021 – 2024

Purpose and goal: Bus-as-a-Service (BaaS)´s objective: - To generate insights into new business opportunities, based on a common network of vehicles, with a focus on operation and service development of a harmonized IT platform.
- To strengthen our competence in the field and establish Sweden as a showcase for successful innovations and productive collaborations between all actors in the value chain, including competing suppliers. - To influence ongoing and future international standardization initiatives on the basis of project results. Expected results and effects: The pilots will be offered on the market as products or services within two years after the project is completed. This means, among other things, new services that make the journey more attractive to travelers and that facilitate maintenance and operation of vehicles. For the parties involved, the project acts as a showcase and creates contact areas for customers, suppliers and partners. The project is expected to attract international visitors who want to see how to migrate from IT systems in silos to a harmonized IT platform. Approach and implementation: The project consists of several different work packages that work iteratively and where the work package manager regularly report to the project manager. One of the work packages consists of 8 pilots and aims to test and demonstrate a number of concepts in relation to ITxPT and IT services in public transport, e.g. shared network and sign control. This will first be done in a lab and then tested in a test bus. The pilots are running in parallel with four other work packages aimed at evaluating common themes: virtualization, cyber security, one-gateway and business models.
