What is Transport, Mobility and Cities all about?
Future transport modes within our future cities will require new forms of physical, civic and digital infrastructure to enable mobility. These must be designed in new and innovative ways, using smart materials, urban planning principles and be citizen-centric to promote healthy, productive living environments.
Journeys within and between cities will be seamless, with integrated ticketing where transport information and modes are based on intelligent systems and data. Travel within the city will be resilient with smart and multiple modes of transit supported.
To realise this future, innovators, academia and government will need to work together in order to transcend traditional silos. Implementing solutions will require understanding and acceptance within industry and wider communities.
