Transforming Urban Mobility

The Transforming Urban Mobility (TuM) project brings business and cities together to implement system-level and integrated initiatives to steer urban mobility systems transformation towards a safer, cleaner, more accessible and more efficient future

The challenge

Mobility is a driving force for economic activity enabling access to jobs, education, health as well as the production of goods and services.​

Yet, traffic congestion is diminishing economic development, 80% of cities exceed World Health Organization’s air quality standards, and on average transport contributes to 23% CO2 emissions. By 2030 cities will be home to 60% of the global population and these challenges will only be exacerbated. 

The business case

The future of mobility presents an economic opportunity of trillions of dollars. It also holds the potential to improve the lives and livelihoods of billions of people, their quality of life, their health, and their environment. TuM members are leading the mobility transformation in a way that is both environmentally sustainable and economically beneficial.

The solution

Digitalization, new technologies and business models present opportunities for business and cities to collaborate and accelerate the creation and deployment of sustainable mobility systems.​

Transforming Urban Mobility delivers a cohesive set of initiatives that act at system level. Each co-designed action aims to remove barriers and mobilize stakeholders to contribute to transforming mobility.
