    Urban Mobility Lab

    The Urban Mobility Lab provides a unique opportunity to reflect on the key transport challenges and opportunities of a fictional city case. Composed of different stages throughout the course, it allows participants to:

    • Conduct a comprehensive analysis of the transport problems of a city today
    • Develop in small groups a (mini) Urban Mobility Action Plan
    • Think through its implementation and the design of a service contract

    This exercise requires participants to reflect on the different transport policy approaches, consider the right stakeholder mix, identify concrete activities and anticipate results and feasibility.
