The need to provide clean, decarbonized, and efficient transportation is crucial to solving many of the most serious challenges facing cities-including pervasive air pollution, traffic congestion, and greenhouse gas emissions. EVs, automated vehicles (AVs), intelligent transportation systems, smart parking systems, last-mile logistics, mass transit innovations, and mobility as a service options are expected to approach mainstream adoption within the next decade. Together, these technology innovations have the potential to address major urban challenges and transform mobility in the city. Innovations such as hyperloops, underground automated pods, and air taxis offer the possibility of further disruption. The urban mobility market will also be influenced by the development of new mobility platforms, increasing integration with the energy sector, and rollout of next-generation communication networks.
Cities must prepare for the future, including making changes to urban planning and land use policy. They must also invest in physical infrastructure (e.g., EV charging) and digital infrastructure (e.g., data platforms and 5G networks) to support the development of cleaner, more connected, and automated transport systems. While technologies such as AVs are likely to offer many benefits, mass transit will still be important for moving large amounts of people. Despite the increased efficiencies and potentially shared model of AVs, there is only so much space on city streets for light duty vehicles. The future of city transport must be a multimodal ecosystem with public transport options integrated with AV fleets.
