Our current private car based transport system is inefficient and unsustainable. The Mobility as a Service (MaaS) model is offering a solution by combining public and private transport modes and aiming to provide seamless trips over one interface. This study summarises the current state of the art of MaaS research by analysing scientific research papers. Overall, 16 MaaS-related documents in Scopus and ScienceDirect databases were recognised as relevant for this study. The relevant literature was divided into three groups according to the topics of the studies. The most significant observations are presented based on the
literature and future research needs are discussed. Currently, there are relatively few MaaS-related scientific studies published, but the issue is topical as most of the relevant studies were published in 2016 or 2017. This study helps the MaaS stakeholders and the scientific community to recognize the current state of the art and where to focus in future.
