Cities need to tackle car-based lifestyles.
Multimodal mobility systems not only offer a strong alternative to individual car use, but also offer a range of benefits to society, the economy and the environment.
Mobilising citizens through public transport, walking, cycling and shared services means greater choice and develops sustainable habits. However, fulfilling citizens’ daily mobility requires complementarity between the various modes, to offer a seamless travel experience for all.
In addition to an exploration of multimodality, the Policy Brief contains several global case studies that show the way forward:
Building complementarity, and promoting a multimodal lifestyle, requires integrating all aspects of mobility; from governance and policy to physical and digital integration, education, marketing and communication.
This Policy Brief identifies pathways to a multimodal lifestyle that reinforces public transport systems and the tools required to build complementarity between public transport, active and micromobility. It advances the case for cities to adopt multimodality into their sustainable urban mobility plans.
