Innovation for Liveable Cities

A new report by the International Transport Forum looks at the combined impact of two major new developments: ubiquitous computing and shared mobility services. Specifically, it examines the effect of replacing all car and bus trips in a mid-sized European city with automatically dispatched door-to-door services. The report finds that such systems can massively reduce the number of cars on city streets while maintaining similar service levels as today.

"Today the next mobility revolution is underway, based on the use of real-time streams of data that make it easier and more efficient to provide citizens with optimised access to their cities. This report investigates one particular scenario that evidence suggests could occur: the large-scale deployment of shared vehicle fleets that provide on-demand transport."
