The future of urban mobility
Tuesday, 2 June 2015
An interesting study by Arthur D. Little and the UITP, highlighting the mobility challenges cities face on a worldwide basis was published recently. It includes an updated version of the Urban Mobility Index, with an extended scope of 84 cities.
The index finds most cities are still badly equipped to cope with the challenges ahead, indicating there is still significant potential for improvement.
The study identifies three strategic directions for cities to better shape the future of urban mobility, it describes 25 imperatives to consider when defining sustainable urban mobility policies, and gives case studies of cities demonstrating good practice.
Only 11 cities are above average and in the top 20% range. The highest in the European Q-Park countries, in order: Stockholm, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Paris, Helsinki, London and Munich.
