HITRANS are working in partnership with IBI planning and engineering consultants, and Arcadis MaaS design consultants on a project delivering MaaS across the Highlands & Islands.
The project seeks to bring together journey planning, real time data, multi-modes of public, active and sharing transport, and ticket purchasing into one app and reduce the reliance on private car trips.
It has the potential to reach around 500,000 residents and 600,000 tourists across the region and was awarded £445,000 funding in December 2019.
Tactran will lead and work with digital partners to deliver the project.
The project has pilot locations agreed with NHS Tayside, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park (LLTNP) and Dundee and Angus College.
It looks to run three pilots that bring together journey planning, real time data, multi-modes of public, active and sharing transport, facilities information, personalised booking and ticket purchasing with integrated rewards system in one app.
It has the potential to reach 120-140 patients of Perth Royal Infirmary per week, up to 4 million visitors to LLTNP per year and 23,000 college students and was awarded £550,000 funding in December 2019.

This project seeks to support people attending events in the Dundee area and will provide better information about public, shared and active travel options to venues, as well as improving travel ticketing options at the point of purchasing event tickets.
Funding for this project is being allocated following a co-creative approach developed as part of Round One, and as such has not depleted the remaining £1.05 million funding for Round Two of the investment fund.
