The implementation of automated mobility poses challenges. The need for a high level of cooperation and coordination between different public transport operators for example. This can be difficult to achieve, and requires strong public transport authorities to coordinate.
Another challenge is the need for investment in technology and infrastructure to support these initiatives. Many regions won’t have access yet to the significant recourses needed to implement safe and reliable automated fleets.
Despite these challenges, the potential impact of automated mobility on the future of public transport is significant. By promoting cooperation and collaboration between different operators, the technology has the potential to create more integrated and comprehensive transport networks that are better able to meet the needs of the community.
This, in turn, can lead to increased ridership, improved accessibility, and reduced environmental impact, making public transport a more attractive option for the public. Automated mobility has the potential to play a major role in shaping the future of public transport and ensuring its continued success and growth.
