Governance and regulation models to manage disruptive mobility services

  • Global

Tackling the challenge of new mobility innovations with adaptive regulatory frameworks

The proliferation of new technologies and disruptive innovations in the transport sector are taking the world by storm, threatening well established players across many sectors. Regulators and decision makers at different levels of government are facing challenges, acknowledging that existing frameworks may not be fully adequate in terms of protecting society, fostering business development, and achieving integrated, sustainable mobility.

UITP coordinated an EU-funded research project called GECKO (Governance for new mobility services) between 2018 and 2021. The project’s main goal was to support transport authorities with tools and recommendations to develop and implement new regulatory frameworks for the new mobility era of cooperative, inclusive, competitive, sustainable and interconnected mobility across all modes.

This Project Brief presents the main achievements and key results from the projects. It presents the main and most practical recommendations that are addressed to different authorities.
