A major area of work for Yale is to market test the mobility as a service (MaaS) proposition with the aim to understand what the community demands and businesses are willing to provide. Yale won the David Willis Prize (2018), ITLS Research Prize (2018), and was selected by Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) Australia as Youth Ambassador to the World Congress (2019), and as recipient of the Young Professional Award (2019).
