Future of Urban Mobility Meetup

September 5, 2017 @ 15:30 - 17:00

Smart phones entered our lives about 10 years ago. Today, it’s hard to imagine exploring a new city without asking your favorite mobility aggregation App where to go, and increasing number of mobility services can be purchased on that same phone. In the meanwhile, commuters continue to either feel stuck in their cars hitting daily traffic queues, or they take train plus a bus or a bike to get to work. Either way, there is room to improve our daily commute experiences.

In this meetup, we will focus on the following three questions:

  • What would be a dream scenario for urban mobility in the next 10-20 years?
  • What are the key challenges to get there?
  • What is the role of government in terms of both regulation and how it spends its money?
