Public Transportation & Mobility Services

Automobiles have shaped personal mobility for a long time until the rising number of vehicles on the road became a cause of concern for cities, many of which started experiencing a shortage of parking spaces, as well as traffic jams and air pollution caused by exhaust gas. Going hand in hand with the efforts to mitigate climate change, the mobility strategies of many countries have shifted focus on more efficient ways such as public transportation and mobility services, including car-sharing and ride-hailing. These strategies are expected to shape urban mobility in the coming decade, paving the way for a more sustainable and efficient way to move around.
