By Adam Beck | Program Lead, Future of Place
We didn't know it at the time, but our work on 'Mobility Now' was one of the first efforts in evolving what is now the Future of Place project.
Over the course of almost 2 years our Mobility Task Force worked away researching and debating all things the future of mobility. This finally led to the publication of 'Mobility Now' - A New Urban Mobility Framework.
In it, six steps to a better mobility future are articulated:
Adapt and re-design the urban built environment
Develop a new urban mobility operating system
Introduce more accessible and equitable mobility
Embrace a global 21st Century urban mobility data system
Create a new mobility incentives regime
Implement new decision making and strategy development practices.
Advancing technological capabilities and new service models combined with unprecedented city growth, create great opportunities and urgent pressures to deliver new mobility solutions more rapidly than ever.
