Abstract: The MRT system in Singapore is one of the densest and busiest transit networks all over
the world. However, it is still challenging to bridge the short gap between home and the transit
stations. Thanks to the rapid development of information technologies, various types of on-demand
mobility services emerge. This project specially looks into both passengers’ and operators’
preferences on different mobility-on-demand travel modes on serving the last-mile travels. In the
presentation, the research framework and the preliminary data analysis results are demonstrated;
while the potential cooperation with other research groups is also proposed.
