Global management consultancy Arthur D. Little has released the long-awaited fourth edition of its 'Future of Mobility' study in collaboration with UITP.
This new special edition explores mobility systems in a post-COVID-19 world.
“The Future of Mobility Post-COVID-19 – Turning the crisis into an opportunity to accelerate towards more sustainable, resilient and human-centric urban mobility systems” was launched this morning after a much-anticipated release.
The latest Future of Mobility study, which engaged with over 70 executives from more than 30 organisations worldwide (transport authorities, mass transit operators, mobility solutions providers and professional bodies), aims to shed light on the impact COVID-19 will have on mobility patterns in the medium-to long term.
It also provides strategic responses to enable mobility policy makers and solutions providers to leverage the disruption caused by the crisis and make step changes in the post-COVID-19 world.
The report provides a summary of more than 100 actions that transport authorities and mobility solutions providers are taking, or planning to take, in response to the crisis.
It also identifies six “game changers” that are critical for mobility system players to make the most of what is a unique window of opportunity to move forward and accelerate change.
“Together, we must move beyond the management of short-term response and seize a historical and unique opportunity to start over and shape the future of our cities,” said Jérôme Pourbaix, Senior Director of Global Growth at UITP. “We don’t want to go from lockdown back to gridlock, therefore this is our chance to work together and bring back better mobility to people in our cities.”
We’re going Back to Better Mobility with our focus on a post-pandemic world.
