WBCSD and ITF are collaborating on a case-specific policy analysis study that will map emerging trends across transport modes and help navigate the new mobility landscape. This ambitious piece of work will further investigate the latest research and best practice on Mobility as a Service (MaaS), as well as formulate policy recommendations for its implementation towards more sustainable mobility in cities.
The potential for connected, automated, shared and electric (C.A.S.E) mobility to radically transform the urban mobility landscape is promising - but uncertain and untested at scale. With the right policy framework and guidance, and with effective coordination among all stakeholders, the sustainability of transport can be greatly improved, in parallel with the outlook for urban growth in the 21st century. Guidance is needed to help policy makers and business leaders navigate the disruptions of urban mobility across different global contexts.
At the heart of the emerging new mobility landscape are a range of business cases and service delivery models that capitalize on new technologies to provide value to travelers while potentially enabling new, less car-centric, travel behaviors to emerge. These services will be essential to deliver improved societal outcomes, but their scale, scope, impacts and potential outlook are relatively poorly understood.
Urban mobility is changing, and this research project will set off a vital cross-sectoral dialogue around the prospect of connected, automated, shared and electric mobility. It will help companies focus on sustainability in transforming the mobility system and support the development of innovative business models and strategies.
